California Cards - Gold Rush PostcardsCalifornia Cards is a collection of historical Gold Rush illustrations, recreated as a series of modern day postcards. The series consists of 20 different black and white images printed on standard size postcard stock, and are ready to be written and mailed, or kept as a souvenir of the California Gold Rush.
The images reproduced here are all well over 100 years old, coming from contemporary newspapers, weeklies, lithographs, and original California pictorial letter sheets. They depict various scenes from the gold mines, including mining methods, stock certificates, locales and miners.
Many of the artists responsible for these images actually came to California to search for gold, but after arriving in the mines found that the gold wasn't as easy to find as they'd been led to believe. Fortunately, talent often paid better than a mining claim, allowing those with it to make a better living drawing pictures than their fellow prospectors were making by panning for gold.
