Our History in Postcards

Postcards are an excellent way to get a pictorial glimpse into the history of a particular location. The study and collection of postcards is called Deltiology. Postcards are an inexpensive, mass-produced means of communication, which were especially popular during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Postcards are also an exceptional source of social and architectural history as they show what was popular, or deemed as important, in a particular area at the time they were printed. Postcards are sometimes the only known surviving pictorial record of an event, street scene, people, landscape, waterway, building, or other man-made device or machine, which oftentimes makes them an important historical artifact.

* Following are some postcards (grouped by decade) from the collection of the Ormond Beach Historical Society, and the collections of a few of our members and friends.
