I have always liked the beautiful stonework often used in early 1900s buildings and homes. The first post card is the First M. E. Church in Parkersburg West Virginia on a 1911 postcard published by I. Robbins & Son and printed by Curteich. The grey stonework really makes the stain glass windows stand out and the turrets and fancy entrance ways provide an impressive site.

The second stone building is the Millicent Rogers Library in Fairhaven Massachusetts and is a 1920s postcard published and printed by the New Bedford News Company in New Bedford Massachusetts. The grey stone and the contrasting red roof along with the many different shapes of the building make this an exciting visual experience. This vintage postcard is available in my Massachusetts listings on my website at Moody's Postcards.
