A Kentucky Primer : Postcards of Louisville, Paperback / softback Book

A Kentucky Primer : Postcards of Louisville Paperback / softback


From the spires of Churchill Downs and the Cathedral of the Assumption, to the bluegrass farms of its outlying areas and the blueblood roots of its historic districts, Louisville has something to offer every native and visitor.

Over 200 vintage hand-tinted and black and white postcards from the 1900s to the 1940s take readers on a journey back in time to tour old Louisville, showcasing some of the city's most famous landmarks and sites.

Tour an antebellum plantation house, have a Hot Brown at the Brown Hotel, travel on a steamboat down the Ohio River, walk the grounds of Fort Knox or on a lawn of Kentucky blue grass, and cheer on the longshot from the stands of Churchill Downs.
