Philatelists in Laredo

Postcard invitation for the Laredo Center for the Arts show

Little did I know that I have a friend (from my first day in Laredo) who is a philatelist (studies stamps & collects).

While I may not know a whole lot about stamps and what is rare or not, this exhibit also includes postcard collections. I can’t wait to see some of the ancient Laredo postcards that will be on display – I hear it is a huge collection but only a select few will be displayed.

I tried looking for more information on the Center for the Arts website but it is very out of date – what gives?? Regardless, for sure I will be going to learn a thing or two of both arts!

A congratulations to Dr. Francisco Cervantes, Roberto del Bosque, Dr. Heramb Singh, Armengol Guerra, Richard J. Gonzalez, and Lakshmana Viswanath for pulling together their collections for us to enjoy.
