pieces of paper ephemera, postcards are frequently overlooked as sources of
information or as a significant research tool, but their value is increasingly
apparent. Postcards are not only illustrative, but, in quantity, they also serve
as markers of popular taste and attitudes. Despite the obvious possibility of
inauthenticity, postcards are often highly appealing because they provide the
only image of a building or scene that is in color. The increasing ease of color
reproduction, too, is altering our perception of the informational value of
Examining the postcards of a town or city can pinpoint what features or characteristics were considered to be distinctive or valuable. Postcard publishers issued cards that would appeal to tourists. However, they also wanted them to interest the residents, who frequently mailed cards to friends and relatives who might never visit the place. Cards depicting public buildings, railroad stations, parks, and busy streets were, in effect, benchmarks of civic achievement. They enabled both visitors and out- of-towners to see exactly how well their city compared with others.
