HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
Convention Hall (view 2 of 2)

 This postcard shows a photograph taken sometime after the Hall’s opening. It proclaims the Hall as the “Largest Convention Hall in the Southwest.” The Hippodrome, which was a theater and entertainment center, is clearly shown in this photograph, which would date it no earlier than the mid-1920s.
