Originator
Gifford, Daniel, 1970-
Description
"This book argues that holiday postcards circulated primarily among rural and small town, Northern, white women with Anglo-Saxon and Germanic heritages. Gifford reconsiders the postcard phenomenon as an image-based conversation among exclusive groups of Americans. This book demonstrates how the postcard images reveal deep divides at the height of the Progressive Era"-- Provided by publisher.
