PJ Novak wrote the history of Huntington on a postcard. A librarian, archivist and dedicated deltiologist, she is also the author of Huntington from the Postcard History Series of Arcadia Press.

On this episode she walks us through the many hamlets and villages of Huntington at the turn of the last century, pointing out the buildings, the bobsleds, and the people who made up the community. 

We also discuss the history of the postcard itself, a simple yet fascinating message from the past that can tell us many things today.
