Didn’t get to the 2011 Heart of Amsterdam Tour?

Forgot to get postcards?

Just realized what a great gift a postcard set would make, or what a great way sending one to a friend would show your pride in the city?

Don’t worry – we have you covered

(Scroll down for an exclusive website offer!)

The 2011 inaugural HAL series of six Amsterdam postcards includes one antique reprint of lower Church Street circa 1900 and five contemporary views – today’s lower Church Street, the East Main Street business district, the Amsterdam Free Library,  the Chuctanunda Creek and Kirk Douglas Park, and the Sanford family plot and mausoleum in Green Hill Cemetery.  In the late 19th and early 20th centuries there were literally hundreds of postcards of Amsterdam printed.  These cards were a source of civic pride and showed friends, relatives, and acquaintances worldwide that “this is Amsterdam”.  Few cards of Amsterdam have been produced recently, and the Historic Amsterdam League intends to rectify that now, and through the coming years.  Pick up a set of the 2011 cards to start your collection, or an individual card or two to send out into the world and once again announce that “this is Amsterdam”.

 

Complete sets of cards (1 each of all 6 designs) may be ordered for $6.00 each, postage and handling included, directly from HAL by sending your order and payment to:

Historic Amsterdam League

P.O. Box 132

Amsterdam, NY 12010

 

Individual cards may be ordered for $1.00 each, plus $1.00 for postage and handling (up to 6 cards).  If ordering individual cards, please be sure to specify the design as identified above and the quantity of each design desired.

 

Individual “Heart of Amsterdam 2011″ postcards and complete sets of the six different designs are also available at the The Book Hound, 16 East Main Street while supplies last.

 

Exclusive website offer

“Heart of Amsterdam Station” special cancellation sets

In conjunction with the Heart of Amsterdam tours on May 21st, 2011 the United States Postal Service offered a special limited 2-hour cancellation featuring graphics commemorating the anniversary of Amsterdam’s 125th year as a city and the “Heart of Amsterdam Station” designation.  This was a one time opportunity for collectors as the cancellation stamp shown below used for this event will not be used again. 

The Historic Amsterdam League is pleased to be able to offer an extremely limited number of postcard sets with the collector’s cancellation.  These cards are stamped and canceled and are therefore not suitable for mailing, but are intended as a special addition to your collection.  Due to the nature of the event, once these sets are gone there will be no additional sets offered.  Complete sets of stamped and canceled cards (1 each of all 6 designs) may be ordered for $16.00 per set, postage and handling included, exclusively from HAL by sending your order and payment to:

Historic Amsterdam League

P.O. Box 132

Amsterdam, NY 12010

Sorry, but individual canceled cards are not available.
