About Selected European Historical Postcards

This database contains historical postcards with photos of various places in Europe. Information provided about each postcard includes:

  • Place information (city/town, state/province)
  • Caption
  • Postcard era (year range from which the postcard may be dated)

This database is primarily useful for obtaining a photograph or picture of a specific place in time. If you do not already have pictures of the places your ancestors lived, historical postcards are a good alternative to personal photos.
