Antique Postcards My Mother Will Love

March 16, 2011

Antique postcards are unique for their newsworthiness, simplicity and art form. I adore streaming through piles of old postcards in antique shops to see what mattered to people when they communicated with folks far away. The simple addresses take us back to a less condensed time in our society.

While conducting some online research into the professional background of my great grandfather Fidardo Landi, an Italian sculptor from Cararra, Italy, I discovered the following antique postcards of the Redfield Foreman Monument in Syracuse, N.Y.  I immediately bought them so I could share with my mother, a non-computer user, and show her what Foreman Park looked like when the statue was completed in 1906.  Mom was, of course, thrilled and busy making copies for all the cousins and grandchildren.

This is the other side of Foreman Park in Syracuse, N.Y.
