Greetings from Shreveport, LA
We've all seen the typical touristy postcard bearing the scrawled message, "Wish you were here!" You may think such items are reserved for pictures of places like Mount Rushmore or the Hawaiian Islands, but over the years, Shreveport has been the subject of its own collection of postcards. This exhibit will show visitors of the Spring Street Museum a view of Shreveport as seen through these vintage and early modern postcards.

The Evolution of the Domestic Goddess
From the antebellum housewife to the 1950s June Cleaver, America's image of the ideal housewife has changed dramatically.
This exhibit looks at the skills and tools once necessary to master the "domestic arts". At the same time, visitors to the Spring Street Museum will learn how the changing image of America's ideal housewife reflected the changes and modernization of American society itself.
