Overview


Many of the postcards that appear in this book were mailed more than 60 or 70 years ago, often bearing simple messages between friends and family members. Now the images are seen again, sharing some of the interesting history of Flint, Michigan. There are postcards from the time when the city had two passenger train stations a few blocks apart, and images of the first steel arches over Saginaw Street. There are images of busy streetcars and the factories that made the town a leading producer of carriages and wagons, earning it the nickname "Vehicle City." Other postcards show how Flint became a leader in the "horseless carriage" industry, and then the birthplace of General Motors. There are images of many of the city's churches, schools, stores, theaters, and amusement parks, and even major events like fires and floods.
