Geographical Postcards -- United States, 1893-1970

 Series 1
This series consists of postcards representing 3,241 locations in the United States. The cards are arranged alphabetically by state, and then by city or town within each state. For larger cities with many cards, the collection is further sub-divided by subject. The approximate number of cards for each entry is indicated as follows: if there is no number next to a place name, fewer than 5 cards are held. Otherwise, the estimated number of cards is indicated (ex. Alabama--Mobile 25-30 items). If postcards from a particular state have been digitized a link is provided in the subseries description.
