HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
Benton Avenue (view 2 of 2)
This and the first postcard shows a view from Central Street looking north down Benton Avenue. The first postcard is probably the older view based on the cars showing in both photographs. The suggested date of 1925 seems reasonable for the first postcard and maybe a little later date for this postcard, with Springfield (Central) High School on the left. The school is not its usual red brick color but appears to be a gray color in this postcard. Perhaps the artist who colored this embellished photograph forgot the color by the time the print was made.
