IAGenWeb is pleased to announce David Shedlock has allowed the IAGenWeb county websites to display his postcard collection of images of Iowa. Mr. Shedlock has thousands of postcard photos from all over Iowa, dating 1900-1920 and after.  The postcards on this page depict Clayton county buildings or locations. Some have writing on the back of the card. Thank-you David!

If you are researching in other counties, you can visit the other IAGenWeb county websites to see if they also have added David's postcards. This is a new project, so it's possible that not all counties have uploaded their postcards or only some of them. An easy way to find postcards from his collection is to enter "David Shedlock" [including the quote marks] into the main site search box on each county website.

All transcriptions are by S. Ferrall. Many are 'best guess' due to the handwriting. Anything enclosed in [ ] brackets was added by the transcriber.
