Dan Austin is the man when it comes to history around Detroit.

He has had a set of successful books (Lost Detroit, the Forgotten Landmarks of Detroit, etc.) and based on his excellent track record I’m excited that he has a new book coming out called “Greetings from Detroit: Historic Postcards of the Motor City.”

If you are a fan of books about Detroit and vintage postcards, then this book is for you. And, from the looks of it, the book for me.

Austin’s newest book features over 230 historic postcards from around Detroit. Each postcard is also accompanied with information and context of each image.

Vintage postcards are a great way to get a peek into our city’s past. They offer a snapshot of life in the early 20th century. I can only imagine the postcards that are in this book. I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.

The book will be released in early September, but if you pre-order the book from the Historic Detroit website by clicking here you will get five vintage Detroit postcards and Austin will sign the book.

The price of the book is $24.99.
