Did a quick search on ebay.  These tend to be a bit spendy but I was amazed at how many there are for sale! http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=postcards+insane+asylum&_sacat=0

You might search for postcards of "closed institutions" too-- i know the ones in Massachusetts near where I worked are supposedly haunted and get tourists so they might have PCs of them.

Look up Weston Mental Institution or Asylum from Weston, West Virginia.  The building is still in use as a haunted house and tours.
