Greetings From Los Angeles:
Vintage Postcard Views of Los Angeles County

Postcards, Greetings from Los Angeles, California

Postcards were the Instagram of the past. Through our collection of more than 560 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. All images are of original postcards in our collection.
