More Info

The Pennsylvania capital city has dynamic architecture and a remarkable skyline, beautiful parks, and important transportation routes along the mighty Susquehanna River near the middle of the state. Learn why the city thrived during the 19th century due to its location, commerce, and leading citizens. See the government buildings and many street scenes as they are portrayed on over 400 postcards of the 20th century. Tourism emerged here with the opening of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in the 1950s. A concise explanation of postcard history defines the styles, postmarks, and popularity of the cards shown. This beautiful state and its political center are well documented in this handsome souvenir and historical reference.
