A call for postcards

It’s been several years now since I’ve worked on this blog, but a visitor who submitted some comments got me back into it.

Please feel free to send jpg’s of any postcard you may have of Schenectady. I will post them up here. I do have more to put up but haven’t had the time lately to do it.

Thank you very much,


You can send them by email to patz1675@yahoo.com

Our 2007 Christmas Card…

Pat and Ron Zollinger’s 2007 Christmas card. 

Merry Christmas 2007

These ten images were scanned from Pat’s old Schenectady postcard collection.

From top to bottom, left to right the postcards depict the following Schenectady Churches.

St. John’s Church
Trinity Methodist Church
Bellevue Reformed Church
First Reformed Church
Hope Chapel *
St. Mary’s Catholic Church
Cobble Stone Church
First Baptist Church
Presbyterian Church
St. George’s Episcopal Church

* Hope Chapel is long gone having been demolished many years ago. But we don’t know when, why or even where it was in the city.

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas bring you hope,
and The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

Pat & Ron Zollinger

I’m not sure what the number on State Street was for the Edison Hotel. I’m not even sure which of these buildings is the Edison Hotel.
