From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art. At the turn of the century, the northwest corner of Arkansas was a remote region of small towns and farms. Today, Washington and Benton Counties are among the nation's most rapidly growing metropolitan areas. This book captures sixty years of that evolution (1900–1960) in more than two hundred carefully selected postcard images. The postcards, enhanced by the actual words penned by the senders, are accompanied by extensively researched facts that bring to life both the images and the history of the region.
