"A Post Card of Rocks"

When the Royal Botanical Gardens re-opened its renovated "Rock Garden" after a three year work project, the Golden Horseshoe Post Card Club was happy to provide a series of post cards of the early years of the garden (1930's). Mixed with those from the archives of the RBG, a display was put into the former Tea House for all to visit while perusing the grounds. The display ran from May until Thanksgiving of 2016 when it made way for a Christmas display of model trains. However the response from the public led to the RBG moving a portion of the display to the main foyer of the new entrance of the Rock Garden. It is currently configured to remain in this spot until next June so if you get a chance to visit the Rock Garden in 2017 be sure to look out for the post cards.
