This souvenir folder of folding postcards is part of the Avery Classics collection which has over three thousand postcard books featuring American cities and towns. Intended to be mailed as souvenirs, these postcard books date from the 1890s to the 1950s and often include views of significant buildings–or charming local attractions, as the case may be.
