10 Awesome Postcards from the the Wildlife Conservation Society + New York Botanical Garden's Bronx Park Postcard Collection

We love a roundup of old images and spent a long time today perusing the Wildlife Conservation Society and New York Botanical Garden's new postcard collection, which follows the history of Bronx Park (built in the 1880s and home to the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Garden). There's a lot of fascinating old photos of architecture and animals, and, below, we've chosen some of our favorite images. Bring back the guinea pig castle!
