Thumbing through stacks of postcards, on the hunt for pictures and stories from a particular town … in a particular time frame, I’ve discovered that it’s inevitable to find duplicates. Imagine the postcard rack in any town you’ve ever visited. There are anywhere from ten to 50 copies of the same card available for purchase. Since beginning the Penny Post feature, I’ve noticed a trend in which Indianapolis images are most popular (the Monument … and the former bear cage at Riverside Park). The more I look through the cards, the more I find something so endearing about the “duplicates.” Researching this week’s post, I ran across a collector’s comment that no two postcards are ever exactly the same – not to the sender or the receiver.
