House of Representatives, State Capitol, Harrisburg, Pa.

Needs just a little more gold inlay

Oh, my, how opulent.  I’m sure that the fine people of Depression-era Pennsylvania didn’t mind paying for this at all.  Well, on the plus side, since the room was destined to be filled with politicians, we can be sure that this project was “shovel-ready”.

This is a Curteich “C. T. Art-Colortone” linen postcard, number 3A-H911, manufactured in 1933, and is postally unused.  It’s in pristine condition, thanks to the care of Kay Anthony.

    Cette salle de rassemblement politique ressemble exactement à la salle des mariages de la mairie du XVIII district de paris (voir le post de cet semaine).
    Encore une carte de collection fantastique pleine d’histoire, merci.

    Editor’s Translation: This political assembly room resembles exactly the marriage parlor of the city hall in the 18th District of Paris (see my post of this week). Another card from a fantastic collection full of history. thanks.
