This article and the next two will generally cover massive buildings from the early 1900s in the state of Massachusetts. The first of these shown below is the Boy's Club in Fall River Massachusetts. The 1910 census indicated that 119,295 people resided here at this time which made it the third largest in the state behind Boston and Worcester. This is a postally used circa 1905 postcard with proper writing on the front since only the address could appear on the back until March 1907. While the size of the Boy's Club is not massive, the building has the stone mass and look of a fortress.

The second post card shows the High School which is massive and also has the heft of a stone fortress. This postcard also has proper writing on the front but there is no writing on the back since it was not mailed. This memo on the front is most interesting since it says "Given by a Mrs Young in memory of her son. Cost over half million. White Stone." Both post cards are available in my Massachusetts listings along with 10,000 more postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! Your window to the past.
