Book Description:


The fleeting scenes of the train depot in Ashley, the Auburn Hotel in Auburn, and the Thompson Opera House in Butler were captured on postcards sent or collected by DeKalb County's residents and visitors. Showcased here on over 200 vintage postcards and images is the history of DeKalb County. Offering a unique visual history of the area through preserved one-cent postcards, this book portrays the socials, events, buildings, homes, and residents of a by-gone era from the towns of DeKalb County, including Corunna, Garrett, Spencerville, St. Joe, Waterloo, and many other small towns and rural areas.
