The colorist for this Curt Teich card (number 7A-H115, published in 1937 for the C. F. Johnston Company of Seattle) apparently felt that the town of Wrangell deserved to be portrayed as vividly as possible. And from what I can tell, the Wrangell of today, though a bit larger, is just as vivid. Wrangell is steeped in Tlinget culture, and is home to incredible nature observatories where one can watch the salmon-fishing bears from behind a photo blind. They are also home to large concentrations of bald eagles during the spring and fall.
Wrangell’s main industry seems to be tourism; they boast no less than a dozen bed and breakfast inns. Interestingly, the town is not accessible by road; one must travel by sea or air to get there.
This postcard is a gift from Donna, who claims that her postcards multiply overnight and is therefore trying to downsize. Many thanks!
