If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the 200 historic views in Delaware in Vintage Postcards provide eloquent commentary on the First State in the early part of the twentieth century. Capturing the era between 1905 and 1925, this charming retrospective takes readers on a journey from Selbyville and Fenwick Island to Claymont, Arden, and Hockessin, and down the picturesque Main Streets of more than fifty Delaware towns. Illustrated postcards, which became popular at the turn of the last century, highlight the economic importance of land and sea, the state's varied architectural beauty, and the everyday lives of Delaware citizens.
