Travel into historic Ohio with delightful original postcards from the first half of the 20th century. Many of the locations have grown in prominence, while others have all but disappeared from the map. 136 Ohio communities-from Akron to Zoar-are represented here just as they appeared decades ago. Treasured postcards bring to life the street scenes, bridges, courthouses, parks, and fine homes that were landmarks of the Buckeye State. Vintage views include Ohio State University in Columbus, Conneaut Harbor on Lake Erie and the birthplace of President William McKinley in Niles. The historical context of each location is reviewed. Current and past residents of Ohio, along with collectors of ephemera, will be transported to a more gentle time as they view this volume of more than 300 original full-color postcards. Hand-written messages add charm to the descriptions presented in this remarkable collection. Values for each card are included with the captions.
