From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily

popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced

during this "golden age" can today be 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 Salisbury and Rowan County,

North Carolina, showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage

postcards available.
