Postcards grew in popularity in the early-twentieth century. Postcards offer an easy way to send pictures through the mail, and to communicate both visually—with the picture on the front of the card—and textually, with a short message hand-written on the back of the card. This album brings together a collection of postcards created from personal snapshots, though many twentieth-century postcards were mass produced. For some unique examples, look at "atomic postcards" from the Cold War.

Other postcards in this exhibition include an album of "Postal Souvenirs," a postcard album, Souvenir of Holy Land, and Scenes from Kodachromes.

This album is part of the Prairie Ephemera Collection housed in Bruce Peel Special Collections.
