|SEPTEMBER GOES BACK TO SCHOOL|
Bird's Eye View of Harvard University - 1878
|Recall falls past on the old college campus with our antique prints of early schools in New England, elsewhere in the U.S., and abroad. If your historical alma mater is not represented on our website, please contact us to see if we have items that have yet to be listed online. We often have additional postcards, and like good scholars, we're always adding to our collections.|
|DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HISTORY..?|
|Brush up on your geography with our fascinating antique school & wall maps. The former were used for tax and municipal purposes, & those of you who attended school prior to the computer age likely recall the latter pull-down type, usually on rollers with springs. Both were lithographed on multiple sheets, brightly hand colored, & varnished for protection, as the temptation to touch maps was (&-- let's face it-- still is) often overwhelming. To fully appreciate their size and scope, these pieces really must be seen in person!|
|A SEPTEMBER RETROSPECTIVE|
Harper's Weekly, September 30, 1871.
|Time travel, it turns out, is considerably simpler than Einstein suggested. With our collection of antique engravings, you can personally stroll through Septembers past, pausing to witness such moments as the 1871 "Union Torpedo" explosion in Beekman Street, a visit in the same year, to the Homes of Horace Greeley; cheer for the "Tub Parade" at Lenox, Massachusetts in 1886; and witness the 1890 Ascent of Mount Sir Donald by Members of the Swiss Alpine Club. Last, but certainly not least, attend the celebrated Cape Cod cranberry harvest of 1891. Some of our antique engravings have yet to be listed on the website, but you can always come in for a complete view of our collection.|
|COME FOR THE MAPS, STAY FOR THE OLDE CAPE COD CHARM|
