Post cards have many a story to tell about the built landscape, disastrous events such as fires or floods, daily folk customs and identity of place. During the golden age of the post card, before telephones, personal messages could contain anything
from the mundane, “ Having a fine time, wish you were here....” to more profound reflections on family life or colorful portraits of towns and cities from the perspective of newly-landed immigrents. Robert Perreault presents vintage post cards of Manchester that offer a lively, nostalgic adventure through a major
industrial center, home of people from around the world.
