Today's City Hall postcard brings to my mind the song "Long Tall Sally" and is one or the more unusual shapes which appears to be a result of the real estate that was available. This is a massive building which dwarfs all of the surrounding businesses especially when you consider that the photographer was on top of the buildings on the left. Half way up the side facing us is a sign saying "WELCOME" and the top of the tower has a huge clock. This is Acmegraph postcard #4009 and they are one of my favorite publishers since they consistently produce excellent postcards. This postcard is available in my Wisconsin listings on my website, Moody's Postcards.
