Postcard photographers traveled the length and breadth of the nation snapping photographs of busy street scenes, documenting local landmarks, and assembling crowds of friends and neighbors 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 Americas history. This fascinating new history of Mississippi showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage postcards available, all organized into six geographical areas. Several family histories and other historical facts add to the richness of this book.
