Local Lima, Findlay Ohio History in Arcadia's Vintage Photo Postcard Books

Lima Ohio baseball team for Odin Cigars

In a recent post on Moody's Postcards Blog, he wrote about having
 just read a book from Arcadia's "Postcard History Series" which features early local history of specific areas illustrated with vintage postcards.

It definitely sounded like my kinda thing, so I immmediately surfed over to the ARCADIA PUBLISHING website.

A couple of Lima band postcards.

I found that they Arcadia has hundreds of titles on local histories. So many small American towns, (and some big ones), all illustrated with images from antique photographs, and real-photo-postcards. I can't wait till my order arrives!

Since I collect postcards, as well as Lima, Ohio memorabilia, and am in the Findlay Antique Bottle Club, I was pleased to find some books in Arcadia's offerings that kind of tie those subjects all together. And I get to illustrate this post with just a few of my LIMA, Ohio RPPCs (real photo postcards).

Findlay in Vintage Postcards -- a history of Findlay and Hancock County, Ohio. Captured here in over 200 vintage images is the development of this quintessential Midwest town, from its origins as a rural farming region to the prosperous community it is today.

Fostoria, Ohio: Volume II -- Volume Two features the Glass Era and is released in conjunction with the Bicentennial of the State of Ohio (1803-2003) and the Sesquicentennial of the City of Fostoria (1854-2004). Both titles include over 100 vintage photographs to compliment Paul H. Krupp's popular writings.

Glass in Northwest Ohio -- The discovery of natural gas around Findlay in 1886 started an industrial rush in northwest Ohio. Within five years, over 100 glass companies had moved into the region...

Here's all the rest of their great  books. You can click on the map at bottom of the page to search for other U.S. states.

Check out their most excellent site -- I'm sure you'll find some titles for yourself, or as gifts for your collector friends. Mom and Dad's "Hallmark Days" are coming up fast!
