Melrose Postcard Collection

Having a great time… wish you were here. Visit historic Melrose via the library’s digital collection of scenic postcards depicting municipal buildings, churches, schools, historic homes, and other current and long ago scenes of Melrose. From Ell Pond to Mount Hood and trolleys to shoe factories, the circa 1900-1955 postcards preserve a unique pictorial glimpse of days gone by.
The bulk of this postcard collection was kindly donated to the Melrose Public Library by Kenneth Gloss of the Brattle Book Shop.
