With over two hundred specially selected postcards created between 1900 and 1930, this visual history explores life in five Central Kentucky counties in the early twentieth century. Family stories abound, and Main Street scenes depict county court days, trials, and parades, together with the stagecoaches, buggies, and trains of a bygone era. Tourist sites such as My Old Kentucky Home, Lincoln Homestead, and Tatham Springs are included, as well as distilleries, hotels, depots, bridges, and a chautauqua. Images of Protestant and Catholic schools, colleges, churches, convents, and monasteries show the reader how this area came to be known as the "Kentucky Holy Land."
