POSTCARDS FROM A DISTANT PAST
By Sarah Casewit
Over the past few years and throughout our travels, we’ve collected vintage postcards from around the world. To deltiologists - or postcard collectors, these unique pieces have something magical about them - they offer a captivating window to what travel was like many decades ago, pre-Instagram. The postcards take you to a moment in time where our world was less global and cultures more vibrant and defined. In addition to the appeal of looking at a vintage photo, the writing on these century-old cards inspires us, describing what people saw and did on their travels so long ago.
Here is a selection that will take you on a beautiful trip down the memory lane.
A Special Selection: Bunny's Travel Correspondence in 1910
Here are some of our most prized postcards in our collection, written from an American traveler, Bunny, to her friend Mrs. Smith, on her world tour. We love Bunny's sense of humor and adventure!
