Overview


This remarkable collection of over 200 vintage postcards, which date from 1891, visually document Fullerton's growth from an agricultural settlement

into a city of 130,000 residents. Unique and rare postcards of all types--advertising, greeting, historical, photographic, and novelty--provide glimpses down through the years of Fullerton's hopes and possibilities, successes and accomplishments, as one of Orange County's most wealthy and important

communities. Fullerton and Orange County have a rich social history, and the pictures and messages stored on the fronts and backs of these postcards showcase the people, places, and events that were the most important to residents over the decades.
