I am an avid postcard collector. Most of my collection is
comprised of chromolitho and white-border-era cards. The areas of
interest that most attract me at the present time are opera, silk
clothing, Northern California, hot springs, and the work of
Charles Weidner. Post card collecting runs in my family: My
daughter Letitia Glozer collects Winsch greetings, Mitchell Corn
Palace cards, and cards depicting ossuraria. My daughter
Catherine Yronwode collects good luck cards (see her web site on
these below), Northern California agriculture, linen-era roadside
attractions, novelty architecture (including the ubiquitous
Mitchell Corn Palace), Freemasonry-related greetings, and views
of Masonic lodges.
