Souvenir Folder of Texas "The Lone Star State"

These must be more from Uncle John's collection.  When I looked them up online, they seem to have been printed in the 1940's, and the bus in one of the pictures looks to be of that era.  If you enjoy this set, you will probably also like the ones in this link too: Vintage San Antonio Postcards, c.1944.

So, there you are, my friends.  If you enjoyed this story, please visit my Sepia Saturday friends by "CLICKING HERE" to find other neat photos and stories.  To read more about my family and other stories featuring old photos, memories and more, please look for this picture of me and my dad on the left-hand sidebar and read whatever else catches your fancy.  Thanks so much for visiting!

great postcards Kathy! I've pinned some on Pinterest, hope you don't mind. Have a good 4th of July!

These postcards capture exactly what I think of when I think of Texas. I'd like to go to Texas one day and see a Blue Bonnet. That's such a cool name for a flower.

These are wonderful! Do you have the originals yourself? I think the grapefruits are my favorite.

Hi Grace, nice to hear from you! Glad that you enjoyed these.

Hey, Wendy! I'm starting to really like Texas. I've been to San Antonio twice and we are planning on visiting Dallas this fall. I'll look for Blue Bonnet stuff for ya.

Those are some classics for sure. Various types of collectors would love to get their hands on those.

I'm kind of new to Sepia Saturday, but really enjoy your posts. This one reminds me of my Mom's collection of post cards from the 30s and maybe before. I'm from Texas, and sent some to friends, or at least saw some, like these as well. I'll try to find out if I still have those post cards somewhere. But not today. (you know how that is, I imagine).

Lovely colours again in these postcards. Now why does the chuck wagon picture remind me of ‘Blazing Saddles’?

barbara and nancy said...

what a great collection of postcards.
I remember going to the Alamo once and it's so tiny. It looks gigantic on the postcard.

Fine collection of postcards. My visits to Texas have been confined to (in) airports on my way to Mexico. Doubt I'll make it now.

9 feet 6 inches across the horns of that Long Horn Street! I've never seen a crowd of these creatures but I doubt they have to worry about being squeezed together! Love the cards.
