Old Postcards of the National Museum
This is a not-yet-officially-archived collection of postcards depicting the Smithsonian’s natural history building on the National Mall in Washington DC. The postcards came from the private collection of Russell Feather – a collections manager with the National Gem Collection with the Department of Mineral Sciences.

Eventually, all known meta data and tags will be added to the individual images and for those that are not already catalogued in the Smithsonian Institution Archives, we will make sure copies are sent to that office too.

We’ve posted these images as a DRAFT set in flickr so all the right Smithsonian parties can see and have access to them.
