Madison has a rich photographic history, much of it in the form of postcards. This volume presents more than 200 historical postcard images from the private collection of Madison resident John Powell, who has been collecting and trading postcards for more than 20 years. The images here reflect Madison's businesses, public institutions, civic life, and civic pride in the first decades of the 20th century. With author David Sakrison's engaging text, these images offer a unique window into the city as it was, and as it saw itself, 75 to 100 years ago.
