 Title:  Arizona Postcards Collection 1891-1990 ead 
 Date(s):  1891-1990 
 Abstract:  This is a collection of approximately 600 postcards relating to the State of Arizona. The postcards in the collection date from 1891 through the 1990s, but most of the items are from Arizona’s Territorial period through to the early 1920s. The collection includes real photo cards, greeting cards, and panoramic cards. The postcards in this collection are a visual demonstration of how Arizona has changed since the territorial period and many of the cards show buildings, people and ways of life which no longer exist. Messages on the reverse of these postcards comment on the experiences of inhabitants and visitors. Postmarks show post offices and in some cases towns which have disappeared, and demonstrate modes of postal delivery (such as railway post) which were key to the development of transportation throughout the western United States.
