We have been working on this page and the drop down menu, which can be a little difficult to use. This page has direct links to each State Collection, simply click the postcard for the State you wish to view.
While we are still working on the State of Alabama, we have amassed a nice collection of old views from Alabama. (43)
While we don’t expect a large postcard collection from Alaska , we have found a few to share. (47)
I’m not a big fan of the newer postcards, but this card from Prescott Arizona and the sky caught my attention. (47)
There are a few States which finding colorful postcards can be difficult, but we are working to bring you as many as we can find. Nice view of Texarkana Arkansas above. (88)
California has plenty of old postcards to add , and this postcard of Vine Street and Sunset Blvd. is only one of many in the collection. (147)
A few things I have always found interesting are old diners, bus stations, gas stations and old movie theatres. Much of the old neon street signs are gone today, but the postcard above from Colorado shows what it was like. (70)
I like the old postcards that simply show a day in the life of the Town or City. Above is Bristol Connecticut . The old cars on the street help to figure out just about when the postcard picture was taken. (71)
Delaware is one of the tougher States to find old postcards for, but we have gathered a few. There are likely several I am missing.
Washington DC is going to be a tough one. There are hundreds of old postcards for DC of different monuments , but we are looking for just a postcard of a street scene. This page will be up soon.
Just what I was looking for from Florida, Dunedin has the palm trees that really sets the tone.
Even postcards off an old Hotel or favorite local business often show the identity of a Town. Above is a postcard from Clayton, Georgia.
Hawaii is much like Delaware, Alaska and Rhode Island being tough to find Postcards for. The page should be up shortly.
Many of the Midwest States actually have a nice record of old postcards available. Idaho has shown quite a collection of postcards, from the Cities to small towns.
Old of my favorite styles of old postcards, the colorized photograph. We have gathered many of the Illinois Cities and Towns, but have a long way to go.
There are a lot of postcards we have found from Indiana. And a lot more to add .
One of the more unusual town postcards, this one has a early plane flying overhead.Iowa has plenty of towns and we have plenty of postcards to share.

One of the States we have worked hard on is West Virginia. The State is full of smaller Cities and Towns, and we have tried to stay on the Main Street Theme, but you’ll see a few postcards in the collection that are a little outside of the subject, but which really show the past of West Virginia. Don’t miss the old Greyhound Bus Station postcards from Charleston.
