Visit Moody's Postcards, your source for vintage, collectible postcards!
I look through thousands of postcards every year and every now and then there is one that makes me stop and look just because it is so different from what I normally see. Today's postcard is a good illustration of what I am talking about. This would not be that unusual if I was looking through foreign postcards but this one was in a group of Missouri postcards. This is a circa 1910 American News Company postcard of the City Workhouse in Kansas City Missouri. The postcard has no further information on the back and the sender did not even mention the view on the card. At first glance, I would have guessed it was an Armory which often look like castles but I am guessing that it was a maintenance shop for city vehicles or equipment. If we are lucky, somebody from Kansas City will let me know and I can update the article. This post card can be found in my Missouri listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.
