Summary:
Collection of postcards, greeting cards, and paper dolls. Most of this material is photomechanical.
Series 1: Postcards, largest series in the collection. Largest categories are geographic. An important group of cards is from Maryland, especially views of Baltimore, including the Feb. 7, 1904 fire. Most cards are photomechanical reproductions of photographs, both black-and-white and color, although there may be a few "real photo" cards. Also includes good examples of three-dimensional images incorporating lenticular screens, such as Xographs.
Series 2: Oversize postcards.
Series 3: Greeting cards, including Christmas, Easter and Valentine's Day.
Series 4: Paper dolls.
Series 5: Scraps of chromolithographed pictures, used to make greeting cards or to be placed in scrapbooks.
Series 6: Trade cards, including some in the form of postcards.
Series 7: Miscellaneous ephemera, incl. postcard-size metal prints, religious cards, political birthday cards, magazine clippings, plastic cards, invitations, and Bicentennial souvenirs.
