In the early 1900s, the golden age of postcards was just beginning. Millions of cards were mailed across America and many still survive today in archives and private collections. Through these snapshots of history, Tyler’s evolution can be traced. While fruit and cotton production was king into the early twentieth century, a floral beauty soon brought Tyler a new royalty – the Rose Queen. The discovery of oil in the city’s backyard supplied a security blanket during the Great Depression’s uncertain days, and Tyler benefitted with commercial and population growth. This book contains more than 200 vintage postcards that chronicle Tyler’s social, educational, and medical history, and its place in the heart of East Texas.
