Historic Postcards & Small Paper Items

There are a huge number of postcards out there depicting historic Port Huron.  We will post images of these that we obtain legitimately.  That is, while a great many can be viewed on Ebay and other sellers’ sites and should be copyright-free, we will not copy them to post them here.  If you want to share a copy of a postcard that you own, please do!  We will provide the source of all images.  Please email us with the image at porthuronhistory@gmail.com.  Thank you.
