Milwaukee. MKE. Great city by the lake.
Such life, such potential.

This is our love letter to you.
Thanks for the Love, MKE.

This month we’ll be featuring some of the fabulous postcards in our Greetings from Milwaukee digital collection.  

From the late 19th century to the 1960s, there were numerous postcard publishers active in Milwaukee. The two largest, the L. L. Cook Co. and the E. C. Kropp Co., produced thousands of cards on every imaginable subject. Most cards have images of parks, buildings, street scenes, churches, hotels and restaurants, making them invaluable as a resource on historic Milwaukee. Many of these postcards show scenes of Milwaukee that are now vastly different; many older buildings have been torn down and replaced, parks have been landscaped with less Victorian flair, and raccoons no longer reside in the County Zoo.
