Arthur Livingston was a premier postcard publisher from New York and among his better productions was the "Greetings from Picturesque America" series of 50 undivided back postcards around 1905. These are very easy to spot with a vignette of a lady holding an American flag with an Eagle behind her and a scroll in her right hand that says "Greetings from Picturesque America". Most of these post cards had significant white space on the front for the sender to put their message since only the address could appear on the backs until March 1907. The first example shows the Georgia Railroad Bank in Augusta Georgia.

The second post card shows the beautiful interior of St. Paul's Church in Augusta Georgia.

The third example shows the Hampton Terrace Hotel in Augusta Georgia. Many other cities were also represented in the series of 50. These postcards can be found in my Georgia listings along with 10,000 additional post cards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! An exciting hobby that teaches history.
