(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage B. S. Reynolds, C. T. American Art Colored postcard from the 1930s. It shows a view of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia. 

"This great Memorial to George Washington, the Mason, is situated on Shooters Hill, in the western part of Alexandria, Va., on the highway between the City of Washington and Mount Vernon, his old home. The imposing Memorial, 333 feet high, overlooks the City of Washington to the north and Mount Vernon to the south, while eastward at its foot lies Alexandria, which city he helped to plan. All the surrounding country is rich in historical association. The unusual architectural features and the remarkable terraced approaches present a striking appearance. It is modelled after the ancient towers which were used as beacons to guide mariners into harbors, as exemplified in the beacon at Rhodes. The Memorial houses a priceless collection of memorabilia of Washington, including many articles closely connected with his career in the Masonic order. The cost of the Memorial was $4,000,000. It is being built by the George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association.", reads the description printed on the back. 

 The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, minor general stains.
