This e-book argues that vacation postcards circulated essentially between rural and small city, Northern, white ladies with Anglo-Saxon and Germanic heritages. via research of a wide diversity of assets, Daniel Gifford recreates the historical past of postcards to account for those particular audiences, and reconsiders the postcard phenomenon as an image-based dialog between unique teams of american citizens. various narratives are hence published: the debates generated through the rustic lifestyles circulate; the empowering manifestations of the hot girl; the civic privileges of whiteness; and the function of rising technologies.
From Santa Claus to Easter bunnies, flag-waving turkeys to gun-toting cupids, vacation postcards before everything appear to be fun expressions of a halcyon earlier. but with wisdom of viewers and old conflicts, this publication demonstrates how the postcard photographs display deep divides on the top of the innovative Era.
