Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

During the first half of the 20th century, Columbus grew from a population of 125,560 (1900) to a population of 375,901 (1950)-a three-fold increase. Postcards were one vehicle for recording the activities that accompanied this growth. Columbus, Ohio: 1898-1950 in Vintage Postcards includes the earliest Columbus scenic postcards, many scenes from the golden era of postcards, and later scenes that show some of the changes that occurred in Columbus between the end of World War I and the post-World War II boom of the late 1940s. The material presented is from the personal collection of the author, considered to be the most extensive collection in existence. This collection includes all of the common views such as the State Capitol, and a large number of one-of-a-kind views, including those of Papa Presutti's first saloon and of Tommy Sopwith (the English airplane manufacturer) at an air meet in Columbus in 1910.
