Vintage & Collectible New Mexico Postcards:

Coronado State Monument
West of U. S. Highway 85 Between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, N. M.

Date Unknown, Linen-type Postcard

This postcard is unused, so I cannot date the card by a postmark. It was disributed by the Southwest Post Card Co. of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The back indicates that this is a "Genuine Curteich-Chicago 'C. T. Art Colortone' post card." The back is divided and has a place for a one-cent stamp.

The text on the back reads,

A-43 - Coronado State Monument
West of U. S. Highway 85 Between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, N. M.

These ruins of ancient Kuana Pueblo, on the west bank of the Rio Grande, are said to have been the village chosen by Coronado for his headquarters from 1540 to 1542.

East, beyond the valley tower the Sandia Mts. with the summit 10,000 feet above sea level.
