Presented by Erika Nelson

William H. "Dad" Martin and Frank D. "Pop" Conard were pioneers of the postcard printing business who found inspiration in the trials and tribulations of Kansas culture. From the early 1900s through 1940, their carefully crafted images pushed the medium of photography, promoting Kansas as a land where ears of corn grew so large that farmers used logging saws to slice them and monster grasshoppers could stop a train in its tracks. This talk includes a slide presentation, postcard samples, and a how-to demonstration so you can make your own "hopper whopper."
