“Greetings From Waterville, Minn. is a pictorial history of Waterville using early postcards. Why only postcards? Real photo postcards were at the height of popularity between 1900-1925. Since the production of real photo postcards was limited to however many a photographer could sell locally, many scenes and subjects were made in very limited quantities and are rare.
Postcards represent histories of communities during their infancy as seen through the eyes of photographers. These early postcards document a city’s growth.
