Plano and Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
“We are always pleased to present Antique Postcard and Paper shows in Texas, as the collector groups, the archivists, the educators, and just about everyone enjoys the chance to find great historical images of Texas' great past as well as vintage images from all over the world,” said Jim Taylor, Courthouse Square Antique Postcards. “Many early photographs of the Southwest are exhibited both by vendors as well as local individuals. By having these two shows in two Texas' cities a week apart, we will be able to have a larger variety of vendors and collectors from around the U.S."
