What did your town look like?

pennyIf you’re writing historic fiction, sometimes it is hard to get a feeling for your setting without visuals. 

Now you can find images taken all over the country that were used on a variety of  Penny Postcards.  Go to the site, select your state then your county. 

I did this for my area and found a something over 40 images of St. Louis City and St. Louis County including Eads Bridge, City Hall, and more.  I even found some places called names other than those I know — a great set of details to check out for historic fiction.

Have fun seeing what you can see!
