Schools were the pride of towns, cities and states from 1900 on with the relentless pursuit of a public education for all Americans. Postcards were a popular way to document the progress of this effort and show the world that you town was progressive and a great place to live and raise a family. The first view is a 1940 Curt Teich linen postcard showing the Franklin Academy in Columbus Mississippi with the Auditorium in the foreground.

The second post card is a 1936 Curteich linen postcard and shows the Whitfield Auditorium at the Mississippi State College for Women, the first state supported college for the higher education of women in the United States. Both of these postcards are available in my Mississippi listings along with 10,000 additional post cards on my website Moody's Postcards.
