The guy behind all those glorious Albany postcards

We at the A-List are huge fans of the @AlbanyArchives Twitter feed. In fact, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say it’s one of the inspirations for this blog.

We just knew the creator was someone after our own Albany-shaped hearts. So we’re thrilled that the creator, Matt Malette, has decided to come out from behind the curtain. Thanks, TU, for the story!

Good stuff!
