A Postcard Collection from the University of South Dakota’s Archives

The USD Archives and Special Collections is home to many unique holdings from South Dakota’s past.  This on-line exhibit, Greetings from South Dakota, is a compilation of 27 postcards rendering images from throughout the state.  As a part of our Chilson Collection, this group of 159 cards is entitled “South Dakota postal cards,  A collection of cards of early South Dakota.”  Although the collection is relatively small, the images are diverse and give a glimpse of life in South Dakota in the early 1900s.  All dates given are based on that of the postal date unless otherwise written on the front of the postcard.
