Scope & Content Postcards, twenty-five: 'Greetings from Hoboken, N.J.' series issued by Brian Gallagher, no date (2010.) Color photographs printed on heavyweight gloss cardstock, 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"; image orientation varies vertically or horizontally. Photographs by Brian Gallagher, a Hoboken realtor and published by him. Edition size unstated.

Cards have Hoboken scenes of streets and buildings. Gallagher produced an earlier 2000s series in a different format. A few subjects remain in this new series, but it apparently features modern photographs (with one obvious exception, no. 24 - Clam Broth House) and format.

Printed full color photo bleeds; all are imprinted 'Greetings from Hoboken, N.J.' on the image with the typeface, ink color plus its position varying on each card.

All cards are titled on the divided back. All are imprinted: Photo by Brian Gallagher, greetingsfromhoboken@gmail.com

They are not numbered and the list below is an arbitrary order. The place name has "Hoboken, N.J." following it on all cards with exceptions noted. Some additional information is added here in brackets.
