Abstract

Kinnear postcard album collected and received from travel's in America, and Europe in 1908-1909. Postcard album's were popular during these years much the same way a photo album's are today. During the early twentieth century, postcards were more inexpensive than photos and were considered prized family possessions that would be located in living rooms to view, and show off.
