The charming town of Los Gatos is nestled at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains and is sometimes referred to as the "Gem City of the Foothills." It has inspired hundreds of postcard images through the years, many reflecting the area's abundance of natural beauty. As the town and surrounding area grew and prospered through agriculture, logging, and commerce, the local architecture and landmarks became popular subjects. Glimpses of everyday life—churches, schools, houses, and businesses—further enhanced the pictorial history the postcards represent.
