Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Aerail view – Bristol, Va.- Tenn.

This card had faded somewhat, so I brought the color up and used an all-purpose unsharp mask.  It’s a Haynes Publishing Company (Roanoke VA) issue from the early 60s.  Haynes cards that haven’t had a lot of light exposure tend to have bright colors.  Joyce Haynes and C. H. Ruth, the agents who shot all the pictures in the area, were probably using Kodachrome.  Damn fine film.

The title on the front, btw, is the font called “Brush script” in Microsoft Word.  Back then, they were probably carving each letter out of soapstone or something…
