"Friendship, a Dumpster, & Those Darned Postcards"

Presented by Grace Hudson Museum at Online/Virtual Space

Jun 24 2021
"Friendship, a Dumpster, & Those Darned Postcards"

In this virtual program, Warner Graves, Ron May, and Steve Lech — all contributors to the book, “Postcards from Mecca” — share stories about Lula Mae Graves and Susie Keef Smith, and discuss the significance of their photographs.

This fascinating exhibition explores the friendship of two women who explored and had adventures in the Southern California desert from the late 1910s through the early 30s. They both learned the art of photography and documented the stark and beautiful desert landscape as well. Susie Keef Smith was the postmaster in the then vibrant town of Mecca, and both she and cousin Lula Mae Graves discovered a passion for making and selling postcards.
