Memphis Postcards Encore On How To Be A Retronaut

I have been following the neat history site How To Be A Retronaut for some time, and reposting items from it to this blog on a regular basis.  After I finished my series of antique Memphis postcards, it occured to me that the cards would be a neat "time capsule" on that site, so I sent in the scans.  I was flattered to see that HTBAR posted the entire set today.  So if you missed them here, or you want to see them all at once, check out "Colourised Postcards of Memphis 'The Cotton Carnival City.'"
