The early twentieth century saw the golden age of the color postcard. With new printing technologies, these inexpensive souvenirs employed bright blue skies as a backdrop for New York City skyscrapers and landmarks, including the Chrysler Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Flatiron Building, the Empire State Building, and the Metropolitan Museum. The postcards reproduced on this smartphone case are from the Museum's Walker Evans Archive and The Jefferson R. Burdick Collection.
