HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD,
Louis Street (view 2 of 4)
and the third postcard also show a
view looking west down St. Louis Street from Jefferson Street. Both
are embellished artist's drawings. The large building on the left
in both drawings is the Colonial
Hotel, with the Woodruff Building across St. Louis Street in the third postcard. This would date this
postcard, which does not show the Woodruff Building, to before 1911
and the third postcard, which does show the building, to after 1911.
Both scenes show streetcars and horse-drawn carriages.
