(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Curteich, C. T. Art-Colortone linen postcard from the 1950s. It shows a view of the Jonathan Kirkbride Home in Mobile, Alabama.
"THE JONATHAN KIRKBRIDE HOME, 104 Theatre Street, considered the oldest building in Alabama, stands on what was originally the Fort Charlotte Reservation, which was owned first by the Spaniards, then the French, then the English, and finally by the Spaniards again, who surrendered it to the United States in 1813. In 1822 the Fort was demolished and salvaged materials used to construct the first Jail and Courthouse in Alabama. Around 1845 the building became the residence of Jonathan Kirkbride. In 1940 it was bought by the Historic Mobile Preservation Society.", reads the description printed on the back.
"Have seen a lot of these homes today. They're so white you have to squint to look at them. Love, Joe + Edith.", reads the note penciled on the back.
The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
