In honor of Louisiana's valiant showing against Hurricane Gustav, I thought I would show a couple of old antique post cards from the state and Lake Charles in particular. Ever since Katrina and Rita beat up the Gulf coast, postcards of the area have been selling better than usual as customers are seeking images of homes, businesses and landmarks that no longer exist. The first post card is a 1916 Curteich showing Pujo Street looking West from Kirkman in a beautiful residential district.

The second postcard is also a 1916 Curteich view showing the Lake Charles Academy and Convent. I hope all of these homes and the Academy and Convent are still standing today. Both of these post cards can be found in my Louisiana listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. No matter what you collect, chances are there are plenty of postcards out there that will compliment your collection. Postcard collecting is fun, educational and very affordable. Join the fun!!
