Connecticut Genealogy Book Reviews Continued: Postcard History Series, Durham 1900-1950

I'm still working my way though my latest library books with Postcard History Series, Durham 1900-1950. This is book is essentially a reformatted version of the Images of America publication. Many of the postcards are reused in this text, often with similar captions. Given the options, I would spend my money on this copy. Images are essentially the same (you will miss only a few postcards). This edition's writer relied less on local knowledge. If you don't know Durham, this is a good starting point to put faces to names and descriptions to buildings.
