From the Preface of this 216 page book: "Although it probably was not their original intention the photographers and manufacturers of postcards have played a significant part in preserving much of our heritage pictorially. Messages on the obverse side also tell little stories of life years ago. They give us an idea of what was noteworthy in the everyday lives of the people of Manheim (Pennsylvania) and their neighbors and relatives. Buildings of long ago reappear on the postcards, bringing back memories to older residents and giving a sense of history to younger generations. Because these postcards have been collected and cherished over the years, it tells us they are treasured artifacts of the past. Present and former residents of Manheim should find this collection of views of their community and vicinity a happy emotional experience as well as a virtual 'museum' of Stiegel's 'little town'. Walk down Prussian Street and look at the Victorian homes of our leading citizens before the major street was renamed Main Street. Compare Market Square of yesterday with its appearance today. This is a book that will provide many hours of discussion, along with fond memories." Filled with dozens of postcard reproductions dating from 1869 - present day, along with descriptive text, this lovely book will take the reader on a nostalgic journey of Manheim, Pennsylvania and its environs.
