Late 1800's To 1939

Motels and Resorts
(56 Items)

Many of these cards were purchased on ebay, some were donated by classmates, and others were shamelessly plagiarized from unsuspecting ebay sellers who were demanding a king's ransom for them.

Cards in this gallery range from the late 1800's to the late 1930's. A few may be of unknown dates, but appear old, so by default they ended up in this gallery.

Here's how to view them; click on the Thumbnail Panel numbers to select which set of thumbnails that you would like to view, then just click on the thumbnail image and the full-sized image will be displayed below. Postcard descriptions and captions will be displayed at the bottom of the full-sized image.
