SpColl 12: Postcard Collection

The postcard collection is divided into four main categories, each of these with sub-categories.  The four main categories are:

  • Subject
    • This category is organized by subject and, in some cases, more specific subjects (e.g. Birds--Swans).
  • U.S.
    • This category is organized by state, then by city within that state.
  • International
    • This category is organized by country, then by city within that country.
  • Oversize
    • This category is organized by the above three categories.

Many of the postcards in our collection have dates on them (and also messages to other individuals), but many do not.

To use this collection, please stop by the BPCL Reference/Service desk, or call us at 419-372-2450, or email us.
