Vintage Postcard:
Early View of The Piedmont Hotel

Atlanta, Georgia

Date Unknown

This unused postcard is in remarkably good condition, given that it is most likely from the Undivided Back era (1901-1907). According to Mashburn's The Postcard Price Guide, A Comprehensive Reference,  during this period only the address was to be written on the back of the card, and any message had to be squeezed in on the front. As you can see here, there is a white space left at the bottom of this card, probably for this very purpose!

While it doesn't show clearly here (a dark image with the dark background of the street), a horse and carriage outfit are on the street at the lower left, which give us another clue to the card's age.

On the back it reads, "The Hugh C. Leighton Co. Manufacturers, Portland, ME., U.S.A. Printed in Frankfort, Germany. No. 2145"
