(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Southwest Post Card Co. postcard from the 1950s. It shows a classic large letter souvenir, "Greetings From SANTA ROSA, New Mexico".
"It is estimated by historians that Coranado crossed the Pecos River near the present site of Santa Rosa, New Mexico, on his journey of discovery in 1540-41. With Spanish colonization Santa Rosa became a lazy village of the plains, the natives tending their cattle and sheep-- to this day it is quaint and interesting. With the completion of Highway 66 the Old Town has taken on new vigor and growth, being one of the most important stopping points between Albuquerque, N. M. and Amarillo, Texas.", reads the description printed on the back.
There is a message written on the back in pencil. The postcard is in EXCELLENT condition, minor wear at the edges.
