Custodial history

The Postcard Collection was originally organized into two series. The first was by Subject and the second was by Accession Number. There were no accession numbers found on the postcards organized by subject. In order to make these images more easily accessible, the CNE Archives reorganized all of the collection into subject files. Where known, the accession numbers were preserved.

Scope and content

The Postcard Collection, C 25, consists of 56 files containing approximately 700 postcards. The file names are based on CNE or Exhibition Place building names or the names of shows and events that have taken place on the grounds over the years. There is one file that contains postcard sets and within the sets, various subjects are represented.
