Penny Postcards from Maine

The volunteers at USGenWeb maintain an excellent collection of antique Penny Postcards from Maine (and from every other state in the Union). Cards from every county in Maine are included, with larger towns and cities being better represented.

The National Museum of American History has a few dozen postcards featuring Maine lighthouses on its website. The largest collection of vintage Maine postcards might be the NYPL Digital Gallery. A search for "maine postcards" produces 97 results—each of them a beautifully tinted masterpiece.
