VINTAGE POSTCARDS

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.
