The University of Missouri Digital Library includes a collection of postcard images that show the development of Joplin, Missouri. They provide an image of a city that grew virtually overnight to become the world’s premier supplier of lead and zinc ore. Joplin also became a transportation hub and still retains the title of the Crossroads of America. In addition to pictures of mines and miners, there are images of souvenir postcards of the motels and motor courts that sprang up along Route 66. vintage postcards, rout 66, joplin missouri, route 66, public libraries
