Digitized Panoramic Postcards at the LoC

The Library of Congress recently finished a digitization project to make available more than 400 panoramic postcards from 1905–09. More than half of the postcards are “real photo” postcards. The cards, measuring approximately 3.5 x 10 in. had a heyday in the early 1900s.

Images can be downloaded as JPEGs or TIFFs.

Search tip: to find postcard images from a specific city or state, enter the place name after typing “LOT 14058” in the search box. The image above is of the Washington Park Hospital in Chicago.
