(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original vintage C. P. Johnston Co., C. T. Art-Colortone linen postcard from the 1940s. It shows a view of the Totem Pole at Pioneer Square in Seattle, Washington.

"This unique pole was carved from a single cedar tree by a tribe of Indians inhabiting Tongass Island, Southeastern Alaska. It is sixty feet high and eight feet in circumference ans was intended as a monument to a distinguished family. The pole stood for nearly a century on Tongass Island. It was discovered by a party of Seattle business men in August 1899 and removed by them to Seattle and presented to the City.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
