Overview
By the time picture postcards came into popular use shortly after 1900, Bozeman was almost 40 years old and prospering, and the Gallatin Valley was becoming settled. The region is well documented in the 20th century by postcards, many of which are published here for the first time. Initial chapters include Bozeman's downtown, Sweet Pea Festival parades, the Bozeman Round-Up, the state university, and the town's continuing expansion. The second part looks at the Gallatin Valley, from Three Forks to Belgrade, and south to Gallatin Canyon.

Author
Helena native Tom Mulvaney has collected Montana images on postcards for decades. A graduate of Carroll College in 1970, he later did graduate work at Montana State University in Bozeman in addition to stints as a schoolteacher, coach, sportswriter, and computer programmer/analyst. Postcards from his private collection, along with those loaned by several Bozeman and Gallatin County friends, provide a choice sampling of images showing scenes from Montana's beautiful Gallatin Valley.
