These postcards feature vintage jackets of New York City books of the Twenties and Thirties. Doormen, kids playing around open fire hydrants, limos, laundry flapping on tenement lines, pushcarts, fire escapes, the El, bellboys, skyscrapers, and hansom cabs—iconic scenes of life in the great metropolis are pictured in these period illustrations. Twenty postcards, two each of ten images.
