Postcards represent yet another media, in addition to text, stories and photographs, that enables us to visualize, and remember, the past.
Knowing the value that such vintage cards possess in documenting the past of Tyler and East Texas, we have assembled a small collection of historic postcards, and present them on this website.
Thus, this section attempts to build a more complete collection depicting the architecture of Tyler and East Texas during the first 50-60 years of the 20th Century.
We have included on this website a number of historic postcards dealing with Tyler's past, such as motels, government buildings, street scenes, homes, businesses, churches and schools.
It is hoped that its availability will provide another media contributing to the enjoyment and edification of those of you with Tyler and East Texas connections.
