Among the Library’s growing offerings via Digital Commons, you may now visit our new portal of regional postcards. The screen shot, below, also provides a link to the general page. By browsing, you may enjoy the display as a slide show or as a way to view single images. More are on the way. Stay tuned, and enjoy these colorful views of the Portland area!

Looking at this postcard, from circa 1910-1920, we can observe the familiar and the structures of yesteryear.

Postcards also inform us about the images visitors and locals chose to send out to faraway places, representing the sights of a city such as Portland.
