Post Card Collection

Identifier: 2007.007

Scope and Contents

The Post Card Collection was purchased in 2007 and includes images of Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania Capitol and the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Chamber dating from approximately 1907 to 1968. Some images may be before or after those dates, but have no indicating dates upon them. These are a valuable resource showing how Harrisburg, the Capitol and the House Chamber have changed over the years. Pride in the State Capitol is also evident in these cards and captions.
