  • Johns Hopkins University African-American real photo postcard collection
    The African-American real photo postcards are a collection of approximately 1018 real photo postcards portraying African-Americans, dating from circa 1905 to circa 1946. “Real photo" postcards are actual photographs which were typically printed in tiny editions, from one to perhaps twenty copies; regular postcards are mass produced. In the present collection a few have been mailed as postcards, with ink text and postage on the reverse. Some have informal written notes of identification or greetings to relatives and friends. Most are blank.
