The humble postcard is the stuff of this visual tour of Marion, Massachusetts in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This period coincided with the Golden Age of postcards (roughly 1898-1920), when millions upon millions of these penny souvenirs were mailed near and far all over the globe. Thankfully, many were stuffed into cigar and shoeboxes for later generations to rediscover, collect, and share. Selected from the collections of longtime Marion residents and summer visitors, A Picture Postcard History of Marion, Massachusetts is a capsule portrait of a New England coastal town that despite dramatic changes all around it, has managed to preserve the charms for which it continues to be loved for the better part of two centuries.
