The postcard collection included in this volume portrays Petersburg as both a progressive 20th century city and as a community with deep historical roots. Landmarks such as Old Blandford Church, the Hustings Courthouse, and the United States Custom House and Post Office (now City Hall) are highlighted in this book. Petersburgs Civil War history is also strongly represented with images of the Crater and surrounding battlefield and fortifications, as well as monuments, memorials, and museums that sprang up after the war.
