Greg Gaar Postcard Collection

About the Greg Gaar Postcard Collection

Greg Gaar is a native San Franciscan, photojournalist, environmentalist, and collector. The approximately 2300 postcards here represent the bulk of his collection amassed over 40 years. Front and back images have been scanned. Some duplicate images are included with differences in captions, imprints, postmarks, or inscriptions. Image dates and estimated publication dates are included. Some of these images were published multiple times sometimes spanning decades. Images themselves were manipulated and modified over the years.

This collection is work in progress. Dates, descriptions, transcriptions, geocoding, and additions of other metadata is ongoing. If you'd like to help in this effort, please let David know using the contact form below.
