Online versions of Club presentations. US-centric, but many others here

Post by norvic »

As is so often the case I found this website while Googling for something else. But I did look at the Machin presentation, and thought it worth mentioning.

It's the website of the Philatelic Society of Lancaster County in Pennsylvania.

Here is a sample of the presentations/slide-shows etc. Some of them have good pictures but are light on text and presentation, presumably because they were for in-person or Zoom meetings, and others have a lot of readable explanation, but the pictures are sometimes smaller as a result.

I've taken this list more or less at random:
