Boston Public Library displays classic postcards

BOSTON — August 17, 2010 – Greetings from Boston is a new Boston Public Library exhibition of vintage postcards that colorfully captures the unique feel, important architecture, and cultural history of early twentieth-century Boston. The city’s thriving neighborhoods are on display, as is the story of America’s long-standing passion for postcards.
 
Souvenir picture postcards made their American debut in 1893. By the early 1900s, the United States was in the throes of a postcard craze. In 1908 alone, Americans mailed more than 677 million cards. These new cards generated immediate appeal as inexpensive keepsakes and an economical means of communication. Although the “Golden Age” of postcards ended with World War I, postcard collecting is still one of the most popular hobbies in the world.
