It's useful to keep up with the history of Texas, and our collections at the UH Digital Library are always a great resource. The Historic Texas Postcards collection features over 243 postcards that present unique views of the state in the early 1900s. Some postcards record events, such as battles or parades and festivals, while others depict prominent buildings in the growing cities. The postcards vary in technique as well, since some are printed, some painted and some are photographic postcards.
