Large-Letter Postcards - part 2

These souvenir postcards were hugely popular in in the 1940s and 1950s in America. Companies like Curt Teich and Co. made cards representing every state and almost all the towns and cities (more than 10,000) in the country.


I have collected a digital archive of around 2000 Large Letter postcards, but won't be showing all those here. Instead I have chosen interesting examples from across the range of designs and locations represented.

For other examples see part 1 also. This is part 2 of a 6 – part post on Large-Letter postcards:
