Today's postcards are great sellers because they bring back those memories of what it was like when we were growing up if you are over 50. These real photos of downtown back in the 1940s and 1950s bring back our childhood in vivid detail including the corner drugstore, old cars, cafes and gas stations when they were still "service" stations and sold gas for 29 cents a gallon. The first real photo post card is a circa 1950 view of downtown Albany Texas with lots of great cars, a cafe, hotel and a Conoco gas station.

The second real photo postcard is a 1950s view of downtown Bracketville Texas showing the Nipper Drug Store with fountain service and the Palace movie theater. This type of real photo postcard was made on many of the large and small towns so keep your eyes open. Both of these post cards can be found in my Texas listings along with 10,000 additional post cards on my website Moody's Postcards.
