Whether done in Sepia-tone or black-and-white – or colorized in the method of the 1950's – postcards always reflect the way Life used to be in a more easy-going and simpler time.
In a day and age when mail was delivered locally twice a day,
it was the norm to write to friends and family about daily happenings, trips downtown, or family members who had entered the service.
Here are just a few early postcards that provide the best
glimpses we have, into the lives of our ancestors. These images literally became an early version of a 'Post-It Note,' for several generations of townspeople.
Our collection includes many images of bi-planes, fire apparatus, local citizens of prominence, and many scenic views and vistas – long hidden from view or destroyed by the ravages of Time.
While the images are often incredible from a preservationist standpoint, the writings and comments on the reverse are often more endearing.
The purchase of an original provides a true sense of owning a piece of history, while a high quality reproduction is available for lesser cost and is a more cost-effective way to begin assembling your collection of local historical highlights.
