South Dakota Supreme Court Chief Justice David Gilbertson is a man who loves antiques.
So he went right to work when the state judicial system was given a collection of postcards featuring courthouses from across the state. He shared copies and framed the originals for preservation and display.
The cards originate from about 1900 to the mid-1950s. They were called "penny postcards" because they required a one-cent stamp to mail.
Former Supreme Court Justice William Srstka gave the cards to the judicial system when he retired in 2013. Srstka, like Gilbertson, is a history buff. He calls the cards "historical artifacts."
The men say the display shows and preserves some of South Dakota's heritage.
The exhibition is located by the Supreme Court courtroom off the rotunda in the Capitol.
