Here Are A Bunch Of Vintage Philadelphia Postcards To Buy

Just when you thought you couldn't love Hidden City more than you already do (hello, how awesome does this Forgotten South Broad Street tour look), they've purchased a collection of Philadelphia postcards, most of which hail from 1900 to 1915 that you can buy on their Mercantile page. With the exception of the 1907 Automat postcard, which is sold out (what is this life?!), you can snatch up little snapshots of such Philly institutions as the Bellevue circa 1905, East River Drive from the same time, and McGillen's Olde Ale House, whose postcard, according to Hidden City, "has an old-fashioned look, but since it's advertising television and air conditioning we're guessing it was made in the late 1950s or early 1960s." >>
