  1. I love this inspiration board! Where would I find the 1902 postcard or a digital copy of it? It would be perfect for a collage frame I plan to do.

  2. Hi Bonnie, Thanks for your kind comments! This particular post card is not digitized and is now part of the inspiration board you see above. However, we do digitize and share a selection of our vintage images with our newsletter subscribers every month.
