|This postcard gives us a historic birds-eye view of
Lynchburg, Virginia. The postmark is dated August 20, 1906, and comes from
Paynes, Virginia. This card belongs to the "Undivided Back" era, in which the
senders often ended up writing on the front of the card, because the entire back
was intended for the recipient's address, according to The Postcard Price Guide, 4th Ed.,
A Comprehensive Reference. This
period ran from 1901-1907.
This is a Raphael Tuck & Sons' Post Card Series No.
2374, "Lynchburg, Va."
The message below the photograph reads, "I am taking
in the town today all by my self. R. H. B."
The card was mailed to Miss Mary PAYNE of Paynes, Virginia.
