Table of Contents

In 1636, theologian Roger Williams landed in Rhode Island and having a sense of Gods merciful providence unto me in my distress, called the place Providence. This city grew to become a leader in textile, tool, and jewelry manufacturing and gained the nickname Beehive of Industry. In the nineteenth century, Providence was known for its busy factories, fascinating history, and beautiful location on scenic Narragansett Bay.

Over 300 vintage, hand-tinted postcards transport readers to the early 1900s, when tourism boomed. See the marble dome of the Rhode Island State Capitol; look into the shops at the Mall on Weybosset and Westminster Streets, Roger Williams Park, a lecture at Brown University, and a clambake on the shores of Narragansett Bay. Approximate dating and price guides will be useful to seasoned collectors and beginners looking to start their own collections.
