Real Photo Postcards of Buildings



Old Real Photograph postcards of buildings have been recognized as important historical documents.  Some of these post cards are the only remaining photographic images of structures that no longer exist, or serve as documentation of how a building used to look before years of modifications and changes.  Many old house owners search for real photograph postcards that show their home as it looked years ago.

Schools, public buildings, and downtowns are other popular topics for real photo postcard collectors.
