The Union County postcard collection contains over 450 postcards of Union County buildings, landmarks, cities and towns, tourist attractions, and other views. Along with these views, the collection also represents aspects of social life in Union County during the past century. Some of the cards were produced privately and are in fact photographs that have been printed onto postcard paper. These were created by individuals for their own small circle of friends and were not mass produced or sold in retail stores. This collection was made possible through the generosity of the Union County Historical Society and Mr. Myron Rausch in lending their collections for digitizing.
