Arch Castle - San Marcos National Monument - St. Augustine, FL - Postcard, c. 1930s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Tichnor Brothers Inc. postcard from the 1930s. It shows a view of the Arch Castle at San Marcos National Monument in St. Augustine, Florida. 

"The massive arch, built without a keystone, is one of the finest constructions of its kind; of Moorish design. The stairway on the right was formerly used as a ramp to transport cannon from the ground to the terreplein above. Construction was started in 1672-- completed in 1756. Built entirely of coquina, this fortification is one of the finest preserved in the world today.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, blunted corner tips.
