Old Post Cards
Click on the picture and it will get better.
The above was the Slave Market auction block in Louisville, Georgia. Louisville at one time was the capital of Georgia.
The other day I got a link to the website Penny Post Cards. I like old pictures and that this what this site is, old pictures with a location attached. The site is old post cards, listed by state and county. Of course most of the post cards, if not all, have had artificially color added, probably more dramatic than real life or they are in black and white.
One of the good things I think that it continues to grow. A state you look at today, might possibly have additions the next time you get around looking. And by the same token I think they are hoping you will be inspired to share what you have.
So far I have only went through a few states.
This card is from Arizona and is about “hauling oil to the mines”. My first thought was “20 Mule Products?”
This post card is a school house and the school students with her students at a palmetto thatched structure in the Everglades in Florida.
