Exhibit: Wish You Were Here: Postcards of New Rochelle

New Rochelle’s grand resorts, meandering shoreline, leafy neighborhoods, stately structures, and impressive Fort Slocum military base were captured in images for a multitude of postcards that traveled the world. The Golden Age of Illustration coincided with an important era in the Queen City’s history, as will be displayed in this exhibit of vintage postcards from the library’s local history collection. The exhibit of enlarged postcards provides a wonderful glimpse into the early 1900s, when New Rochelle was coming into its own identity as one of America’s premier suburban communities.
