Beautiful but busy old linen postcard.
Oh for the days when you could put a name and city on a piece of mail and it’d get where it was supposed to. And all for two cents.
In case you wondered, the back tells you all you need to know: “Navajo weaver.”
Old linen postcard of a Navajo hogan.
Old linen postcard of a “typical” Navajo scene, at least as envisioned by the artist.
…..Arizona! View number 8 shows a sample of the Petrified Forest on “U.S. No. 66”. Love the pre-interstate highway map.
"Second youngest state" says the postcard, which dates it before 1959.
And so we leave New Mexico, heading west on Route 66 to…..
Interesting old linen postcard. Postmarked 1938 and sent to a lady in my hometown.
Interesting photo. Notice the turquoise jewelry the lady wears.
Sent to an address at an apartment building in E. Cleveland, OH. Still there, too:
Back-tracking a little, we take a side-trip to Santa Fe. The original routing of 66 through New Mexico made a big loop north through Santa Fe, then back south to Albuquerque.
Can’t figure out where this is/was. I went through there several years ago and don’t remember seeing this, although I wasn’t looking for it either.
