A History in Postcard Images

“…postcards celebrate America…They also confirm the vigor
of this country’s often anonymous grass-roots art forms and
the importance of popular culture to so-called high art.”    

~February 6, 2009 New York Times review of a
Metropolitan Museum of Art postcard exhibition

The picture postcard represents a powerful strain of indigenous American realism.  Join vintage postcard collector Michael V. Susi (author of the Postcard History Series’ The Upper West Side, Arcadia Publishing 2009) as he shares his images of the lost and surviving structures of the Upper West Side over decades of development and redevelopment.
