Minnie Brooke Postcards

Welcome !

Most recently added:
  • Addition of a previously unknown real photo postcard of a family group sitting in a Dip car, ca. 1907
  • The link to the Minnie Brooke postcard page somehow got lost, so here it is Minnie Brooke cards.

This website has been created to share information about the history of the Potomac River Valley on the Maryland side of the river between the DC/Maryland line and Great Falls on the Potomac.

The largest populated areas along this stretch are Glen Echo and Cabin John; there are several smaller communities including Brookemont, the Anglers Inn area and Great Falls. The ancient history of the area is adequately covered in many scholarly sources and will only be mentioned in passing here. Thus the bulk of material presented will be from around the beginning of the 19th century to the present.
