North Adams is nestled in a comfortable valley in the northern Berkshire Mountains. It exhibits a rich diversity of character, mirrored by its textured and varied environment. The city's history goes back to the 1700s, with a military encounter during the French and Indian War that set the tone for future challenges. Through vintage postcards, North Adams reflects the unique history of this city. The postcards represent what is essentially a "highlight tour" of North Adams, a journey through its first golden era from its incorporation as a city in 1895 to the 1940s. Whether native, newcomer, or tourist, these postcards serve up a taste of North Adams that is both nostalgic and golden."
