About this collection

This collection contains postcards showing varioius views of the "Space Coast" of Florida.  Specifically, the collection contains postcards from Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, Merritt Island and Rockledge.  There are various views of hotels, rivers, street scenes and more shown in this collection. 

Postcards are a wonderful snapshot in time of a particular place and they reveal important details we may not always realize.  What was the dress like at the time?  What mode of transportation was prevalent?  Were the streets paved or unpaved?  What were the characteristics of hotels and other buildings?  What activities were common?  These are just some of the questions that postcards can often answer.

The postcards in this collection represent various postcard "eras", the un-divided back era, the linen style era and white border era.  Some postcards were mailed and others were not.
