We have an explosive subject on today's post cards and begin with a great aerial view of the Hercules Powder Company plant in Hattiesburg Mississippi. This is a nice detailed view of the plant with the railroad depot in foreground, a huge supply of cut tree trunks in the lower right, buildings along the left connected by a conveyor system and numerous other buildings and storage tanks. This is a 1936 Curteich linen postcard which is available in the Mississippi listings along with more than 10,000 more old postcards on my website at Moody's Postcards.

The second old post card is a view of the Hercules Powder Company employees store and club room in Hattiesburg. This is a circa 1950 E. C. Kropp postcard which can also be found in the Mississippi listings on the website.
