Published by Southern Post Card Company, Asheville.  So far, I haven’t dug up any information on this company.

Davy Crockett’s Birthplace

Four post cards of Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in Limestone TN.  All are pre-1967, when ZIP Codes became mandatory.  The top three are published by Haynes Distributing in Roanoke.  The top two were printed by Dexter Press.  The printer of the third is unknown.  Note that the top two also are exactly the same original picture, but the second one has been adjusted to alter the colors (in the printing process, not in the retouching department).

The fourth card, published by American Calendar Company in Greeneville TN, has been retouched, not terribly skillfully, but it gets the job done.

Mosheim Court

Located in Mosheim TN.  Its current address is 8015 Blue Springs Parkway.  Card was printed by Dexter Press, Inc. from their West Nyack, New York, location, where they moved in 1952.  I think that’s a 1963 Chevy station wagon parked in front of the building.

Draper’s Valley, Pulaski VA

Standard postcard size, printed probably by Tichnor Brothers, Boston, and published by Asheville Post Card Company.  Here’s the link to the historic marker shown on the card.

Mountain City & Richlands

Not one, but two, grts (greetings) from Mountain City TN and one from Richlands VA.  These are generic scenes with the grts added.  These cards are from the late 1930s to early 1940s.   There’s not a lot of information on the numbering system of Tichnor Brothers printers in Boston, just that the 6000 – 8000 series was produced “between 1930 and 1945” or so.  The backs on these postally-unused cards are identical.  And I paid more than 50 cents for each card…trust me.
