The history of this quintessential Midwest town is revealed through vintage postcards.


With the advent of new and inexpensive photographic technology emerging in the United States during the mid-19th century, communication by postcard became a very popular way to exchange travel stories, news, and gossip over the centuries. Captured here in over 200 vintage images is the development of this quintessential Midwest town, from its origins as a rural farming region to the prosperous community it is today. Following the experiences and correspondence of Findlay's visitors and residents, readers will witness almost first-hand the trials and tribulations of the city's inhabitants at the turn of the century, including images of its thriving downtown, lost buildings, furious storms, and developing industries.
