About this Webpage

I have created this webpage as a scrapbook of sorts to showcase some of the more interesting postcards from my postcard collection. Much of my collection is inherited from my grandmother, Mildred E. Berwick Casartello. I have categorized the postcards in various groups, so you will find them on multiple pages. The tags line at the bottom of each postcard entry has links to each category that you will find that entry on.
