Can you believe there was a time when postcards only cost a penny to send? Well, from this site, you will see a huge collection of postcards that once were.
To browse the cards, click on the name of the state’s postcards you’d like to view. For example, Alabama. Click on that and you’ll get a listing of the postcards for that state, organized by county. Click a thumbnail to see the postcard in a larger size.
Some of my favorite states to browse were Colorado, Hawaii, Missouri and Ohio. I always check out my home state on sites like this and boy was I amazed at the huge (and I do mean huge) collection from Ohio!
