(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Southwest Arts & Crafts, C. T. American Art Colored postcard from the 1930s. It shows a view of the "Oldest House in America" in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"Santa Fe, the oldest town inhabited by Whites in America, was original an Indian Pueblo called "Tiguex". Its earliest historical mention was 1605 when it became the caputal of the province which indicated that it was already a Spanish town. Undoubtedly the first settlement was in the 16th century by Spanish adventurers. The erection of this house, so tradition relates, was by the Pueblo Indians and that it was a part of the ancient Pueblo of Tiguex.", reads the description printed on the back. 

"Aug 24 - Dear Ella - We went to this old house yesterday. It is old sure enough - we came to Chama from Santa Fe yesterday A,M. It took 4 1/2 hours to come 115 miles. Up + down hill and so many turns but it is a beautiful ride. There is much to see here but most of the country in this parts is scenery not good for much else - Hope you are well - Love, Anna", reads the note written on the back. 

The postcard is used and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few minor creases and stains.
