HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
St. Louis Street (view 2 of 4)
This 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.
