Gotham through picture postcards. Little further description is needed for New York in Postcards 1880-1980: The Andreas Adam Collection. The book, edited by Thomas Kramer, releases officially on October 29, 2010, and presents no less than 900 postcards. This number, you might imagine, covers quite a lot of ground. From the obvious to slightly esoteric spots, the Adam’s collection provides comprehensive history through ephemera over a full century.

Captivating. And, available from Amazon.
