I'm going to focus on old vintage Texas postcards for a couple of days and will start the day off with a 1920s E. C. Kropp postcard view of the Hotel Wear in Hillsboro Texas. Hotels are a very popular subject with post card collectors and many are still around today although they may have been converted to other uses.

Another popular subject for postcard collectors are U.S.O. (United Service Organizations) facilities. The USO has been around since 1941 and is chartered by Congress as a nonprofit, charitable corporation but is NOT a part of the U.S. government. It is funded almost entirely by donations from individuals, organizations and corporations with $0.89 of every dollar spent on the delivery of programs and services to our troops. To find out more or to donate, go to The USO facility on this 1940s Colourpicture post card is the North Oak USO in Mineral Wells Texas and was constructed in the early 1940s for the soldiers of Camp Wolters. Both of these post cards can be found in my Texas listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. Catch postcard fever and learn something new everyday!
