Windsor Historical Society Digital Library of Windsor Postcards

 

This online exhibit features a portion of the Windsor Historical Societyís postcard collection. Visit the website at https://sites.google.com/site/postcarddigitallibrary to see images of Windsorís historic buildings, views of Connecticut Valley tobacco farming operations, and a set of four postcards sent to Private Joseph Bushnell, a young man from Windsor serving in the European theatre during World War I. About forty postcards were scanned, cataloged, and uploaded to the digital library in the fall of 2011.

 

The Digital Library was created by Thomas Brophy, a graduate student in the Masters of Library Science program at Southern Connecticut State University. The postcards are grouped into three thematic collections which present a thumbnail image and a brief description. Each individual item can be displayed on its own webpage with a more detailed description for further exploration and research.

 

In the future, more postcards or other archival collection objects may be added to the Digital Library. Contact the Windsor Historical Society at info@windsorhistoricalsociety.org with any questions.
