About Postcard Roundup

This blog had been in the back of my mind for about two years, and I finally made it a reality in October of 2010. Postcard Roundup is intended to appeal not just to postcard collectors, but also to anyone with an interest in 20th Century history and artifacts. The core of Postcard Roundup is a large and ever-growing archive of high-resolution scans. In the simplest of terms, this might be described as an on-line art gallery of vintage postcards.
You’ll see that not all the postcards are in pristine, unmailed condition. There’s much to learn from postally used postcards, particularly those with correspondence on the back, as they provide a uniquely personal glimpse into the past. If you have questions or comments you are more than welcome to contact me, and I hope you’ll enjoy browsing the archive.
