Laredo, TX – The Webb County Heritage Foundation will host an opening reception for “Postcards from the Past,” an exhibit of historic postcards of Laredo and Nuevo Laredo from the private collection of Armengol Guerra, III, on Thursday, April 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Villa Antigua® Border Heritage Museum at 810 Zaragoza St. “We’re so happy to present this unique exhibit” said Margarita Araiza, WCHF Executive Director. “It is a valuable historical record that could only be brought together by a very dedicated and discerning collector. The exhibit will take people back to an earlier time when the downtown areas, early architecture, noted businesses, and public institutions were the center of daily activity for both communities.”
The opening reception will also feature a presentation at 7 p.m. by historian Dr. Manuel Ceballos of the Colegio de la Frontera Norte in Nuevo Laredo.
The public is cordially invited to attend.
