Celebrating its first 100 years in 1915, Ashland was proudly living in the golden years. It was during this time that postcards gained popularity, becoming the most common form of communication before the telephone gained prominence. Card photographers traveled the nation, snapping pictures of street scenes, local attractions, and citizens. In this visual history, readers will stroll through a town busting at the seams with industry, extraordinary homes, schools, and churches, becoming familiar with its streets, people, and landmarks. These cards are surviving reminders of a significant period that contributed to the story of Ashland, taken by those traveling photographers as they captured the golden years of the early 1900s.
