HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
Y.M.C.A., (second building, view 2 of 2)
This postcard shows a photograph taken of the finished Y.M.C.A. building, so it more accurately depicts the building when it was new than the first postcard, an artist's drawing. Note that the decoration on top of the building appears to completely encircle it in the artist's drawing, but in the photograph it only decorates the front. Note also that there appears to be a concrete-looking addition on the back of the photograph.
