Today we are going back to my home state to visit a couple of small Texas towns. The first post card is a 1940s interior view of the Longhorn Inn showing the lunch counter complete with deer and cow horns on the wall and deer skins on the ceiling. What else would you expect in at the Longhorn Inn at 322 Texas Avenue in Texas City Texas? This is an exceptional postcard with lots going for it including small town, lunch counter, local business and lots of activity.

Our second small town is Tulia Texas with a population of 1,216 in the 1910 census and that is the year this post card was mailed. This is C. U. Williams postcard #7773 and is a great picture of the High School with a barbed wire fence around it to keep the kids in and cows out. C. U. Williams is one of my favorite publishers because his pictures are only found on his postcards and always have a great scene selection, focus and angle. They are easy to recognize by the unique lettering of the titles. Both of these post cards are available in my Texas listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards. CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! The hobby where you can go back home.
