More Description

From 1898 through the middle of World War I, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" are today considered works of art. Postcard photographers traveled the length and breadth of the nation snapping photographs of busy street scenes, documenting local landmarks, and assembling crowds of local children only too happy to pose for a picture. These images, printed as postcards and sold in general stores across the country, survive as telling reminders of an important era in America's history. This fascinating new history of Pekin and Tremont, Illinois, showcases more than 200 of the best vintage postcards available.
