Postcards, as we are familiar with them today, have taken a considerable amount of time to develop. The following is a brief general history of the postcard in the United States. The dates for each time period are not concrete and different sources contain slightly variable dates. It is also important to keep in mind that postcard types produced in one period could also be produced in another, but were simply not produced in the same volume as other card types of the period.

As a memory/history of your place in time, these are just wonderful "memory joggers".

I enjoyed looking back at the pictures of Wildwood; however, the text accompanying the pictures is repetitive and boring. The author names the place, writes a few phrases from the back of the postcard like "efficiencies" or "airconditioned"......then each entry will say "this place is now a distant memory" or "it was torn down and replaced by condos".......over and over and over again.

This book is very lazy in the writing department. I would have liked more research done with an interesting fact or two about each building.

This "blast from the past" book has some great pics of long gone sights of Wildwood. My only complaint about it is that the author closes most of his narrative for each attaction with "so and so motel is but a distant memory" or some other trite, hokey closing remark.

Great pictures of places that are still around and others that are no longer here. As with the other reviewer, the author could have toned down the hokey ("just a memory") remarks for every postcard. Otherwise, it was nice to see some things from before my time.
