Chimney Rock, 225 Feet High

Just in case Alex Trebek asks

“For millions of years this ‘Mighty Chimney’ 225 ft. high, has stood unmoved. The panorama from its top is a memory maker — beautiful mountains, Hickory Nut Gorge, towering cliffs, incomparable Lake Lure, and the Piedmont Plain.” This card from the Asheville Post Card Company is a treasure I almost missed, tucked away in one of the albums that had been owned by Kay Anthony.  Based on the art deco fonts on the back, it was probably made not later than the mid-1930s.

    It’s a very interesting postcard, I didn’t know that this touristic place existed.
    I love your postcards of 1930’s.
    Thank you.
