    We hand it to the Plastichrome people. This unused card from the 1960s (P30618) has some unusual trivia in the caption on the reverse. Modest aging, but still very nice card. Grade: 1

  • Atlanta, airport entrance

    No name for the terminal, only “Atlanta’s jet-age airport” according to the caption on this unused card P43445 from the 1960s. No people? Not now! Grade: 1

    Atlanta, stadium
  • Flint River, covered bridge

    This unused Columbus Photo Service card 2158 is from the 1960s and sadly reports that the bridge had been replaced by “a new cement structure.” No doubt the new cement structure was a vast safety improvement and an historical step backwards. Grade: 1

    Code: 10111009

    Price: $4.00

    Flint River, covered bridge
  • Atlanta, aerial view

    You might have noticed we like to suggest different aerial views, over time, as an interesting specialization for collecting. Here’s a great one (unused) of Atlanta in the 1960s. Atlanta News Agency / Dexter Press card 6262-C shows Grady Hospital in the foreground. Grade: 1

    Price: $7.00

    Atlanta, 1996 Olympics, opening ceremonies
  • Atlanta, Peachtree Center

    This card was mailed in the mid-1980s (we know that) but there was no postmark, and the 33-cent Verville airmail stamp was not cancelled. We know it was mailed because there is the faint pink postal service imprinting on the front. Grade: 4

    Code: 10111013

    Price: $1.00

    Atlanta, Peachtree Center
  • Douglasville, West Broad Street

    Issued by the Douglasville Welcome Center, this view of West Broad Street circa 1940s-1950s is–according to the writer–still current today.  Though this looks like a reproduction, it’s just the way the card was made, and then mailed in 2010.  Grade: 2

    Waycross, water lilies and iris
  • Tempesta Falls

    Unused H.S. Crocker card KR-T-2 tells you all you might want to know about these Falls and the Tallulah River that once caused them to form.  The caption muddies the waters, so to speak, about the status of that area at that time.  Grade: 2

    Code: 10111018

    Price: $2.00

    Tempesta Falls
  • Savannah, Bonaventure Cemetery

    Price: $2.00

    Greetings from Atlanta, Did You Know?
  • Rock City Gardens, Lookout Mountain

    Except for the artwork, this unused linen card 8A-H1037 from Curteich-Chicago seems deliberately to avoid saying “Georgia” or “Tennessee” as the exact location, and as we’ve never been there, we are thinking Georgis is correct.  If not, please let us know.  Grade: 1

    Code: 10111024

    Price: $3.00

  • Atlanta, Mark Inn

    We think this property is still there, though frankly Google does not make it easy to find out.  We have better things to do!  Four of these long (3-1/2″ x 8-1/4″) cards are available, unused, different grades.  All are beginning to age.  Two are Grade 3 ($2), one is Grade 2 ($3), and the other is Grade 1 ($4).

  • Jesup, Holiday Inn

    We don’t know the exact date of this unused card, but it promotes “Free T.V.” and “Free Teletype Reservations,” so it does go back a bit.  Grade: 1

    Jesup, Holiday Inn
  • St. Simons Island Lighthouse

    Linen Curteich-Chicago card mailed in 1961 with stamp and postmark to the Oregon State Highway Department, asking for a map of “your state and other surrounding states.”  We wonder what journey this card made to wind up with us?  Among lighthouse “firsts,” “The first Government lighthousewas built on this spot in 1808,” though not this particular structure.  A little postmark ink transfer on the front.  Grade: 2
