(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is a SET of THREE original vintage Lollesgard Specialty Co., C. T. Art-Colortone linen postcards from the 1950s. They each show a different view of Apache Trail, Arizona. "Four Peaks", "Fish Creek Canyon", "Canyon Lake".
"Four Peaks of the Mazatzal Mountains about ten miles west of Roosevelt Lake are a landmark readily seem from Phoenix, or from points along U. S. Highway 70 to Globe, and U. S. Highway 60 between Globe and Show Low. These four towering granite peaks form a north-south range about 40 miles long which constitutes the boundary line between Gila and Maricopa counties."
"Only 50 miles east of Phoenix, Canyon Lake-- reached via the Apache Trail-- is the popular picnic, bathing and boating resort for residents of Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Salt River Valley. Frequent motorboat races and regattas attract enthusiasts from near and far."
"FISH CREEK HILL - Rounding Cape Horn at the summit of the Fish Creek Grade reveals a panorama of indescribable grandeur. The road itself is a remarkable but of highway engineering, as it winds its way down on the ledges of solid granite, while far below stretches a bewildering network of canyons great and small."
The two of the postcards are unused and in VERY GOOD condition, minor wear at the edges, one is used and is in GOOD condition, wear at the edges, slight water damage.
