I am going back to one of my favorite subjects today so I can show you two more beautiful court houses. The first one is a close up view of the Parker County Court House in Weatherford Texas which has a sign declaring Weatherford as the "Texas Fruit & Dairy Center". This is a 1950s Colourpicture postcard and on the back it says that the County was "named in honor of Cynthia Ann Parker, first white child born in this county. Later captured by the Indians and became the bride of Chief of the Tribe". Picking up these little historical facts is what makes postcards so interesting.

The second post card is a 1939 Curteich linen postcard of the Gonzales County Court House in Gonzales Texas. Gonzales was one of the earliest Anglo American settlements in Texas but was abandoned in 1826 after two Inidan attacks and was rebuilt nearby in 1827. Both of these postcards are available in my Texas listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! A great adventure awaits.
