Click on any state and then the county and you'll see a collection of Penny Postcards with scenes of the past from that county. When you click on a state, make sure you go further - for example, you can select Iowa, then click on Clarke County, then on a specific post card. If you like history you will love this site. If you know where your immigrant ancestor lived, such as Michigan, there are some scenes from old copper mines, etc.

Thanks, June. I love the ones from Iron County. I visit Bewabic every time I "go home" to Crystal Falls. It's still a beautiful place. And Pentoga is a great place. The Indian burial grounds is fascinating. Karen
