VIEWS OF NEW
Welcome to my online
collection of New York State postcards. I have been an avid collector for
many years and and have several thousand cards. I enjoy all aspects of
this hobby, from the search for new cards, sorting, cataloging, and especially
the pride in ownership.
The most difficult part of
collecting postcards is displaying them. Postcards, by their very nature,
are fragile. Paper deteriorates with age, and is easily damaged. Protective
plastic sleeves are available to guard against fingerprints, stains and
UV light damage, but these can be VERY slippery. Notebook pages are also
available. These are convenient, but it is VERY difficult to resort or
add new cards.
This online format is
ideal. I can safely show my cards to a vast audience (I hope), and sort,
shuffle, and rearrange them to my hearts content.
will be entered the first of each month, so stop back in to see what's
hope you enjoy these cards as much as I do.
