Real Photo Postcards: Unbelievable Images from the Collection of Harvey Tulcensky
It may be hard to believe, but there actually was a time when the postcard image was not a cliché. To reach it, you'll have to set your clock back to the end of the nineteenth century, when an Act of Congress allowed Americans to mail a card for just one cent. A few years later, Kodak introduced an easy-to-use and affordable folding camera that put postcard power into the hands of ordinary citizens, setting off a craze. Real Photo Postcards is a collection of the most outlandish and idiosyncratic, beautiful and even occasionally bizarre images of this early postcard period.

Loved the photos but wish that more of the card backs were shown. Those that were translated I would have liked to have those backs shown as well, just to get the full experience of reading the original handwriting as well as the translated text. Read full review
