The Newberry Releases Open Access Digital Collection of 26,000 Early 20th-Century Postcards

Post by disnewberry » Tue Jun 18, 2019 6:33 pm

The Newberry has launched a digital archive (available here: https://publications.newberry.org/tuck/#/) of over 26,000 high-quality images of picture postcards produced by pioneering British company Raphael Tuck & Sons during the first half of the 20th century. Drawing on a vast archive of postcards received by the Newberry in 2016 and developed with the support of Leonard A. Lauder, the new digital collection provides users with a comprehensive body of material for investigating the ways in which British citizens formed and disseminated their perceptions of the world 100 years ago.... https://www.newberry.org/newberry-relea ... -postcards
