Five beautifully kept postcards showing photographs of the homes of Concord. Massachusetts' literary stars. The black and white one is "Elmwood" the home of James Russell Lowell. To the right is the Old Manse built in 1769. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote "Nature" there and Hawthorne later brought his young bride there in 1842 and made the place famous with his "Mosses From an Old Manse. The card beneath the black and white one is Hawthorne's "Wayside" where he lived the final 12 years of life. Next to it is Emerson's home from 1835 until his death in 1882. Lastly, we have "Orchard House", the home of Louisa May Alcott from 1857 to 1878. All are crisp and clean with no postal stamps and no writing. Cards will arrive each in its own plastic sleeve.
