Today I am going to treat you to more small town vintage Georgia postcards with popular subject matter. Our first stop is in La Grange Georgia which had a population of 5,587 in the 1910 census and had grown to 25,998 by the 2000 census. Keep in mind that a small population when the postcard was printed normally means a limited supply produced and a large population now should provide a larger demand. This is a 1920s E. C. Kropp postcard showing the Dunson hospital in La Grange GA.

The second small town is Madison Georgia which had a 1910 population of 2,412 and only 3,636 in the 2000 census. This is a great 1920s Auburn Post Card Manufacturing Company postcard with a view of the "New Morgan Hotel". This town is known as "The town General Sherman Refused to Burn" during the Civil War. It was said he spared the town because it was so beautiful but it was really because the town was the home of a pro Union Senator named Joshua Hill who just happened to be friends with General Sherman's brother at West Point. That is your history lesson for the day. Both of these postcards can be found in my Georgia listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! It might lead you to the answer of a question you would have never asked.
