About this title:

Synopsis:

Though the English colony that would be known as Newport News, Virginia was settled in the early 1600s, the modern story began in the 1880s with the arrival of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad and the building of shipyards by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. Over 250 vintage postcards will take readers on a journey through the city's history, industry, recreation, and culture from the 1890s through World War II. Enjoy a nostalgic tour of the Maritime Museum, stroll down the beach, or take a tour of the biggest privately owned shipyard in the United States. A chapter on deltiology (the study and collecting of postcards) gives collectors useful information to help them build their own postcard collection.
