Newtown High School mega post





Queens Crap mentioned the site!

So in honor of that I'm posting my collection of Newtown High School postcards.
Postcards were a big deal from roughly 1898 to 1940. Mail was actually delivered TWICE a day. The public's desire for "real photo postcards(rppc)" led to a market that produced many interesting views of Elmhurst.

Wow, this is nice. I came across the site looking for info on Newtown High School in general. I am on a committee putting together 25-year reunion of Class of 1985. Your year must be way before mine.
