Postcards represent yet another media, in addition to text, stories and photographs, that enables us to visualize, and remember, the past.

Knowing the value that such cards possess in documenting the past of Tyler and East Texas, we have assembled a small collection of historic postcards, and present them on this website.

The 23-county Upper East Texas region stretches from the piney woods bordering Louisiana and Arkansas to the eastern edge of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. It covers an area of about 16,000 square miles.

The population of Upper East Texas is about 1,150,000 residents. The most populous counties are Smith, Gregg, and Bowie.

From larger cities such as Tyler and Longview, to smaller communities such as Atlanta, Jefferson, Rusk and Gun Barrel City, Upper East Texas offers excellent living and recreational opportunities.

Thus, this section attempts to build a more complete collection depicting the architecture of Tyler and East Texas during the first 50-60 years of the 20th Century. Shown are a variety of historic picture postcards from cities and towns such as Longview, Marshall, Jacksonville, Grand Saline, Rusk and others.

It is hoped that its availability will provide another media contributing to the enjoyment and edification of those of you with East Texas connections.
