Beschreibung

In the late 1800s, postcards of Indianapolis began appearing in mailboxes throughout the country. Since that time, the many prominent monuments, buildings, and parks of the Hoosier capital have been featured on countless cards.

Using an impressive collection of these images, author W.C. Madden takes the reader on an historic journey through Indianapolis from 1890 to 1950, providing a visual history of the development of the city. Indianapolis experienced great growth during the first half of the 20th century, which gave rise to innovative art and architectural structures, many that serve as the subject of postcards featured here. The Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the Indiana World War Memorial, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Union Station, and Claypool Hotel, to name a few, are all highlighted.

At the time it was built at the turn of century, it towered above the cobblestone streets and all other buildings in Indianapolis. Nearly the size of the Statue of Liberty, the monument was originally built to honor Indiana’s Civil War veterans, but now commemorates the valor of Indiana’s military men and women in all wars prior to World War
