Historic Oklahoma postcards dating from early statehood to the mid-twentieth century are now available in digital format for your enjoyment.  Browse all in the collection and explore Oklahoma History through its postcards.

Oklahoma Postcards is a project of the Oklahoma Collection housed at the Oklahoma Department of Libraries (ODL).  The current digital collection is primarily from the George H. Shirk and Wayne Mackey postcard collections, donated by the Oklahoma Heritage Association. Postcards from the Oklahoma Collection as well as smaller donations are also included.

Most of the cards in the collection were commercially produced and document significant buildings and scenes in early Oklahoma. Some postcards are early photographs printed onto postcard paper.
