Postcards were the Instagram of the past. Through our collection of vintage postcards, we take you on a virtual tour of Los Angeles County's past, from the early 1900s through the mid-20th Century. Many of these cards were mailed long ago (some more than a century ago) with personal messages from senders telling of their time in Southern California. Currently, 361 of more than 500 postcards in this collection are digitized and online. We are working to have the entire collection online before the end of the year. All images exhibited are digitized from original postcards in this collection.
