Philippine Picture Post Cards 1990-1920

Title: Philippine Picture Post Cards 1990-1920
Author: Jonathan Best
Synopsis: When the Americas came to the Philippines in 1898, they brought with them the fad for picture postcards which was beginning to sweep Europe and America. Long before movies, television and universal telephone service, postcards were an inexpensive way for people to send a short message with a picture. Hundreds of thousands of cards of the Philippines were printed or made directly from photographs. Many of these were sent through the mails but possibly even more were kept as souvenirs and placed in albums. Fortunately, many of these have survived in collections around the world.
