NEW!
Trolley Postcards of Upstate New York
 The Capital District and Upstate New York had a vast network of trolley lines that ran from Hudson to Warrensburg, and from Troy to the Mohawk Valley. Dime store postcards were a great way for people to remember the trips they took and what they did on vacation. Gino DiCarlo, local historian and author of “Trolleys of the Capital District,” takes us on a colorful visual trip to the resorts of the Adirondacks, the spas of Saratoga Springs as well as local amusement parks. Showing the history of what people did 100 years ago, before the automobile took the romance out of a Sunday afternoon. Gino will also talk about the process of developing of his book.

NEW!
Railroad Postcards of the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys
 The Capital District is the birthplace of passenger railroads and all the lines that followed the Mohawk and Hudson rivers went on to become famous lines of transportation. Every facet of local railroads was captured, printed on postcards and collected by fans and everyday people who loved a keepsake of their trip on the lines. The New York Central, Delaware and Hudson and others will be showcased from the 1900’s to 1950’s in beautiful hand-colored postcards from Albany and beyond. Join local author and historian Gino DiCarlo for a trip down memory lane, or railroad, to be more exact!
