Long before cell phones, Facebook, and e-mail, the penny postcard was an inexpensive, yet effective way to send brief thoughts and interesting images to friends and family. Today these vintage "snail-mail snapshots" are considered historic treasures, offering insight into our remarkable past. Startling changes have occurred in South Berkshire since the first picture postcards were mailed at the dawn of the 20th century. In Around Great Barrington, rarely seen views of Great Barrington, Housatonic, Van Deusenville, and nearby villages provide a fascinating portal into our past. Residents and visitors will find amazing sights and plenty of surprises inside this book.
