Books related to Columbus, Georgia in Vintage Postcards.

Postcards do not provide a comprehensive history of an area, and certainly those in this book do not attempt to either. One can only print what exists and what one can find. These cards provide a marketdriven look at a city. Most of the postcards in this book are from my personal collection, with loans from the Historic Columbus Foundation where several major collections have been donated, and from Mike Helms, a private collector like myself. For those who are not postcard collectors, it is a whole world unto itself.

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. Postcards were popular because they were a quick and easy way for individuals to communicate with each other. Today deltiology, or the collection of postcards, is a popular hobby. The dates for each time period are not concrete and different sources contain slightly variable dates.

Founded in 1828 as a planned city by the Georgia Legislature, Columbus prospered due to its location on the Chattahoochee River. Industry sprang up along the shores of the Chattahoochee and shaped Columbus's identity as one of Georgia's premier cities. Today a thriving metropolis, it is the Columbus of yesteryear that is illuminated within these pages. Early postcard views reflect the city from around 1905 to 1942, showcasing many of its businesses, neighborhoods, and parks. Included are places virtually unknown to citizens today--the Bell Tower, the City Market, North Highlands Park, and Wildwood Park--as well as those that were landmarks a century ago and landmarks still: the Iron Bank, the Springer Opera House, the Union Depot, the YMCA, and Fort Benning.

Great book full of postcards that tell the story of Columbus, Georgia. The notations concerning each postcard contribute greatly to an understanding of the history of the area.

I grew up in Columbus and needed a book to refresh my memory for a book I am writing. This one is mostly pictures and that is what I needed. Good book on Columbus.
