Overview


From the 1890s through the 1930s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced were works of art. Postcard photographers travelled the length and breadth of the nation snapping busy street scenes, documenting local landmarks, and assembling crowds of local children only too happy to pose for a picture. These images, printed as postcards and sold in general stores across the country, survive as telling reminders of an important era in America's history. This fascinating new history of the Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester tri-county area showcases more than two hundred of the best postcards available of this region of South Carolina.
