The roaring 1920s were an exciting time for most people with the war behind them and prosperity booming. The postcard below presents a snapshot of that time in downtown Warrensburg Missouri, a town of little less than 4,800 people, with a young man in the street in his nickers and all the ladies in their hats. The horse drawn transportation has given away to automobile and shoppers are out in force. On the right are Lobrans and Russell Brothers stores. This card was produced by The Albertype Company in Brooklyn New York and has excellent detail for a printed card. This postcard is available in the Missouri listings and you can see all of my United States views on Moody's Postcards.
