Findlay in Vintage Postcards by Eric Van Rentergahm

Book Description

With the advent of new and inexpensive photographic technology emerging in the United States during the mid-19th century, communication by postcard became a very popular way to exchange travel stories, news, and gossip over the centuries. Seen through the eyes of vintage postcards, this new book features a history of Findlay and Hancock County, Ohio. Captured here in over 200 vintage images is the development of this quintessential Midwest town, from its origins as a rural farming region to the prosperous community it is today. Following the experiences and correspondence of Findlay's visitors and residents, readers will witness almost first-hand the trials and tribulations of the city's inhabitants at the turn of the century, including images of its thriving downtown, lost buildings, furious storms, and developing industries.
