Snapshots of the Seminoles

Postcards show how Seminoles lived in the past

An exhibit of Seminole postcards opening this week at the Old Davie School Historical Museum offers a glimpse at life early in the 20th century.A snapshot of Seminole life in the 1920s and '30s is part of Seminoles Look Back: Our People in Postcards, a traveling exhibit from the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on display at the Old Davie School Historical Museum beginning Friday.

The exhibit of vintage Seminole postcards depicts different aspects of camp life during that time, said Diana Stone, education coordinator for the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, the official museum of the Seminole Tribe on Florida.

"When they lived in the tourist camps, people would snap pictures of them and make them into postcards," she said.
