A Guide to Identifying and Dating Real Photo Postcards of the 20th Century

Authored by Gary W. Clark

Real Photo Postcards KwikGuide is a fun guide to the popular postcards in the early 20th century. This guide is required reading for genealogists, family historians, postcard collectors, and vintage photograph enthusiasts. The KwikGuide presents a short history of all postcards and then covers Real Photo Postcards in detail, including how to recognize and date them. Dating postcards is important to understanding who the subjects in the picture may be. For collectors, determining the date of a photograph may help understand the rarity and value of a postcard.
Typical clues for dating postcards such as stamps, stamp boxes, and card format are illustrated with fine images from the collection. In addition, galleries include fashion and style, everyday scenes from the farm, city, and of families.
Many advertisements from 1901 to the early 1920s help understand the explosive growth of the camera and postcard. These advertisements reflect the state of Americana after the turn of the 20th century.
