Cooper River Bridge

Charleston, South Carolina

Date Unknown

This linen postcard was never used, but the reverse side does contain some interesting information about the bridge pictured. Perhaps this was a hometown view that someone kept tucked away to remind them of Charleston when they'd moved to another city.

"Cooper River Bridge is the fifth largest cantilever bridge in the world - two miles long and higher than the Brooklyn Bridge - a shortcut from Montreal to Miami.

"An imposing monstrous structure, costing nearly six million dollars, towering over quaint historic, yet modern Charleston, S. C.

"Choice of two all-paved, scenic highways north and south through the heart of historic America - saves many hours of motoring time -

Sea Level Route...U. S. 701
Ocean highway...U. S. 17
Address P. O. Box 256
Charleston, S. C."

Also printed on the reverse side of the card: "This postcard was published by A. F. DOSCHER Sons of Charleston, South Carolina, and is a genuine Curteich-Chicago "C. T. Art-Colortone postcard (reg. U. .S. Pat. Off.)"

On the front, lower right corner, you can see the notation "2A-H529."
