during an earlier time. I posted some postcards in April 2013 and the blog posts have been popular. Let’s post a couple more.
Downtown Houston, TX. We’ve been trying to find a recent photo so you can compare however, nothing useful, or allows me to use it, is available right now. You can see the courthouse in the lower right corner. We couldn’t locate the Rice Hotel, maybe you can?!
This card is part of the massive Tichnor Brothers Collection which contains approximately 25,000 office proofs of postcards of the United States published by the Boston firm Tichnor Brothers Inc. These are color postcards with a linen texture dated ca. 1930-1945. The concentration is on American vacation places. You can find the start of this collection “The Tichnor Brothers Collection” here.
