Came across this photostream on flickr full of vintage photos/postcards from across America.
Some amazing stuff worth checking out.

excellent, i love stuff like this.

PRO TIP: 50s and 60s national geographics are a great source for golden age americana, if you can find any.

I remember a time where seldom a trash day went by without my stumbling across a huge box of those.

Nice post, Dan.

oh crap, sorry. no, i missed the mid-century mention. the 70's ones with the photos on the front. my grandparents used to have a lot of the vintage ones though, but they were lost in the great basement flood a few summers back.
