These vintage Nellie Bly trade cards are from the collection of Kenneth Florey, author of "American Woman Suffrage Postcards" from McFarland Press (2015). Visit his web site for more information. This release of this collection was inspired by the 2015 release of the film, "10 Days in a Madhouse," that featured Bly's undercover investigative reporting about Blackwell's Island, a mental institution, at the turn of the 20th century. Her work opened doors for women in the journalism profession. Your host: Marguerite Kearns. Music: Kevin MacLeod.
