Object of the month, November 2015
Philip Mohr, curator
Let’s keep it light on the history this time and just enjoy this cute postcard from 1908. Orchard Place was the area that is now the extreme south of Des Plaines and O’Hare airport. Dozens of Des Plaines-related postcards are on Des Plaines Memory in the "Greetings From" project.
We have hundreds of postcards in the collections at the Des Plaines History Center. For more information, contact the museum via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847-391-5399.
