SpColl 12: Postcard Collection

Christmas postcardThe Browne Popular Culture Library's Postcard Collection contains numerous examples of communication and travel for at least the last 100 years or so.  From Disney to Europe to Bowling Green, OH, our Postcard Collection has something for everyone to study, be entertained by, or to just marvel.  Many have handwritten messages (and dated postmarks!) and many do not.  If you are interested in the postcards, don't hesitate to stop by the Reference/Service Desk on the 4th floor of Jerome Library!
