Johnson City TN
First, this is an Asheville Post Card Company issue, probably from the 50s.
Don’t ever buy a card in this condition unless you need a placeholder until one in better condition comes along.
I actually have ones in better condition, but this one was nearby when I needed something to post.
I’d guess the original photo (it was in black-and-white…the color was added during the printing process) was taken somewhere around Top o’ the Town (I welcome other opinions). The white building on the left appears to be the General Mills pile that currently haunts the downtown.
