Greetings from the Northwest

August 4 through October 31, 2017
Postcards from cities and towns throughout the Northwest boasted of their civic improvements, illustrating business districts, parks, churches, public buildings and even homes. They also showcased the magnificent Western scenery with pictures of mountains, streams, and other natural views. Many of these postcards are from the early 20th century when postcards were in the height of their popularity and towns throughout the Northwest were growing rapidly.
