Knowing her mother graduated from the school in 1932, she decided to purchase the postcard for $5, starting what would be a huge part of her life. “I haven’t stopped since,” said Harris, who works in the New Jersey Room at the Jersey City Free Public Library. Now 27 years later, Harris has collected nearly 1,500 Jersey City-themed postcards and another 800 depicting scenes from across Hudson County. Sitting inside a study room at the Five Corners Branch Library, Harris showed off a snippet of her collection to The Jersey Journal. Organized by category inside different color binders, the postcards show scenes from schools and storefronts, and even various phases of Kennedy Boulevard’s development. She keeps a detailed Excel spreadsheet of every card in her collection. “If I had started at 18, and not 37, I would have a lot more,” she said. As a former Jersey City teacher, Harris said one of her favorite types of postcards to collect are images of the city’s schools. Her particular favorite in her collection is a postcard of a group of children standing outside School 11 during a Dutch festival.
