I am a Tucson native and love the whole history of my hometown, and this small little postcard book just was a really neat little find.

I am so pleased to find it, there is even on birds' eye view of my childhood home on one postcard. If I had only known.

I nice history of postcards and Tucson. A quick little read.
I found this book to be such a delight. Wonderful postcards (beautiful artwork)from all era's with interesting details and inside information. This book is broke up into an easy to digest format and will make the perfect gift. This is one of those books that you love to have to share. What a great way to visit a town.
I had the good fortune to visit Tucson several years ago and really enjoyed myself tremedously. However after reading this book, I can see all of the sights that I missed. Each and every postcard tells a story. Seeing the background of a city from the perspective of postcards is a quite innovative way to portray its history. This book is an amazing collection of historical postcards that are displayed in a truly attractive manner. Anyone with an interest in the old southwest or history in general will truly enjoy this book.
I originally purchased this because I love old postcard art, and incorporate it into my own artwork.

What surprised me was that the story for each postcard drew me in, and I just sat and read the entire book. The writing engaged me as much or more than the postcards...wonderful work!

This makes Tucson come alive for me - much more so than a tourist brochure or TV advertisement or a dry history book. The author has conveyed a sense of Tucson as a real city with an interesting history, and now I want to visit and see for myself.
As a long time resident of Tucson I'm so thrilled to find this unique history of Tucson book written in such an engaging manner. Such a great idea for a book, using old postcard images and putting together a history that really flows. My only question was why did it take so long for someone to come up with this great idea? All the images are in full glorious color which makes this a perfect browsing book for all my out-of-town friends and relatives.
