Post Cards as important tools of preservation. There are many topics to explore about the use of Post Cards in a social informatics context. The PostCard Record is one of the most interesting existing artifacts from the Gingerbread Castle’s glory days.
In the Gallery Section many existing postcards can be seen first hand, supplied by a variety of collectors, or use the Search to retrieve some by Character Name.
During the development of this digital library, post card collection, both formal and individual cards that surfaced, provide a field of rich information about the Historic District surrounding the Castle and the events at the site.
Topics worthy of additional exploration include:
- The History of Postcards
- The History of Worlds Fairs ( US Post Cards emerge, and Joseph Urban did some of his last artistic work)
- The Postal History of Hamburg
- The Postal History of the State of New Jersey
