Montville — The traveling Postcard View historical photography slideshow will be presented Friday, June 27, at 7 p.m. at Kingdom Schoolhouse, next door to the Montville Town Office, 414 Center Road. Admission free.

Montville: A Postcard View with Penobscot Marine Museum Photo Archivist Matt Wheeler  will offer the engaging history of the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Company, a postcard publisher based in Belfast during the first half of the 20th century, and how its collection of large format glass and film negatives came to the Searsport museum.

The talk will be followed by a slide show of images from the collection, featuring views of Montville and nearby towns. Audience participation encouraged and expected.
