Handmade Postcard Series

The five postcards shown below are a small collection of handmade postcards of the Bahamas.

The cards are all the same size and have the pictures glued onto a piece of plain card. They were posted between 1961 to 1962 to an address in Bethlehem, Connecticut, U.S.A. Four of the cards were mailed from Nebraska and one from Kentucky. There are no messages on the reverse, just the date and location of mailing along with a brief description of the photograph.
