Postcard Greetings from Old Louisville

(Vintage Postcards from Old Louisville)

Second Street

Second Street was a street of homes for the middle and upper middle class of the late 19th/early 20th Century, still beautifully preserved for several blocks.  By modern standards, many consider these relatively modest and cozy Victorian homes to be mansions.  Not a surprise considering their proud tall elegant fašades and architectural details.  In those days, you could also find some of 'Old Louisville's' most impressive public buildings.
