Meet the Author


Well-known Shreveport journalist and historian Eric J. Brock, author of 12 books on Shreveport and Louisiana subjects, draws from his personal collection of postcards to produce this unique history of his home city. From the benign to the bizarre and everything in-between, the postcards of Shreveport's past show us what previous generations of citizens saw as significant about their home. Shreveport in Vintage Postcards acts as a mirror of the city, reflecting the memories, events, people, and places of bygone days.
