Welcome to the real photo and antique postcard wiki! I spend almost all of my time on the Internet, and rarely come across an actual photograph so I figure it would be kind of cool to start to scan some real photos that were used to communicate back in the early 1900s. This page will focus on old postcards from before the 1960s.

Many of the postcards shown below are from my Dad's postcard collection. The purpose of this page is to upload and categorize as many antique postcards as possible so that they can be easily searched for, and found later on. His website can be found at http://postcardwally.com/
