25,000 Postcards of America in the 1930s and 1940s

The Boston Public Library's Flickr account has an amazing collection of postcards from the '30s and '40s, all published by a Boston firm called Tichnor Brothers, and you can search them by state: Florida, from whence came Ma and Pa Pelican, has over 3,000 postcards in the archive. [Via]

But all the postcards of motels just confirms we've been sending banal pictures that no one else could possibly be interested in long before Instagram.
