A century ago, people sent postcards like we make phone calls today. In fact, if text messages are today’s telegrams, then postcards are yesterday’s Instagram posts. “Postcards from Peterborough and the Kawarthas” features nearly 200 colour reproductions of local scenes. This book is ideal for the coffee table and light reading yet provides a unique resource for researchers by including scholarly chapters like the history of postcards generally and locally and a descriptive list of all postcards, print and digitized, currently in the Trent Valley Archives’ collections. This book is hot off the press and is sure to please just about anyone.
