Postcard Gallery - 1940's
Miscellaneous Views
(49 Items)

Many of these cards were purchased on ebay, some were donated by classmates, and others were shamelessly plagiarized from unsuspecting ebay sellers who were demanding a king's ransom for them.

Cards in this gallery are from the 1940 decade. Most pre-date our memories but many of the scenes remained pretty much unchanged into the fifties and early sixties. A few of the cards couldn't be accurately dated so we put them here because they appeared fortyish.

Here's how to view them; click on the Thumbnail Panel numbers to select which set of thumbnails that you would like to view, then just click on the thumbnail image and the full-sized image will be displayed below. Postcard descriptions and captions will be displayed at the bottom of the full-sized image. To select a different decade, click on the Postcards icon in the upper right-hand area of the page and select a different one:
