Penny postcards bring back yesteryear

10.06.07


USGenWeb has put together a collection of penny postcards from all across the United States organized by state and county. These are from the grand heyday of such cards when the postage really was a penny and it was all the rage to send them to friends and relatives while traveling. Take a look at your favorite locale and see how things have changed! The one above is of the Bear Mountain Inn in Bear Mountain, NY which is still going strong.
