(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique E. C. Kropp Co. postcard from the 1920s. It shows a view of the John McDonogh Monument in New Orleans, Louisiana.
"John McDonogh, who became a recluse after being disappointed in love in New Orleans, left half his large fortune to the cause of education in New Orleans. 32 public schools have been built with the money he left. His monument in Lafayette Square was built with the dimes of grateful school children and every year in May it is buried in flowers by them.", reads the description printed on the back.
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, a few minor stains.
