POSTCARD IMAGES
of
CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY

I have always been interested in Postcards. Here are some Camden Postcards, some dating back to the 19th Century.  

Left- Probably my all-time favorite Postcard. The optimism in Camden's future jumps right out of the card!

If you have any images to share, please contact me.

As the postcard image collection has grown to over 470 postcards, the time for the page to load had grown to the point that it has become very difficult for people who lack high speed access to the Internet to view the cards. For that reason, I am splitting up this web-page by topic. Some postcards fit into multiple topics, and will end up being on multiple pages. This is an on-going process, I added a new "City Hall & Courthouse" page today. 

Thank You for your patience, support, suggestions, and help with this website!

June 8, 2003- Thanks to Benedict Tisa for contributing many images now on this page.

Collecting Postcards is a great hobby since they are not too expensive and take up little space in your home. A few boxes on a shelf or in the bottom of your custom closet by TheCustomCloset.net is all it takes to store your collecton.
