Today we will visit Rock Springs Wyoming on two circa 1908 C. U. Williams postcards which have multiple town views. The first of these shows three churches including the Mormon Church, Finish Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Congregational Church.

The second C. U. Williams post card gives us two birds eye views of the railroad yards which appear quite extensive. Rock Springs in the early days was a large coal mining town and in 1908 had a population of 5,778 while today it has approximately 18,708 residents.

The last postcard is a 1948 Curteich linen postcard showing a bird's eye view of the town at that time with the snow covered Rocky Mountains in the background. Today, coal mining has given away to the energy boom's demand for oil and natural gas which is also plentiful in the area. All of these post cards are available in my Wyoming listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! A great hobby the whole family can enjoy.
