2 is better than 1

In order to facilitate searching and navigation, the Rosenthall digital collection has been split into two separate collections:

William A. Rosenthall Judaica Collection – Postcards

William A. Rosenthall Judaica Collection – Prints and Photographs

Lowcountry Digital Library staff has also added advanced browsing features to the collections’ homepages: by geographic location (city, country, continent) and subject (synagogues, monuments, cemeteries, etc.).

Over 500 postcards of synagogues and monuments were uploaded last week, mostly from Western Europe and the United States. Included are postcards depicting ruins of synagogues destroyed during World War I and scenes from the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 and resulting fire.
