The Golden Age of Postcards in Albuquerque (Part 3): Stationers, Printers, Curio Dealers and more.
Between 1900 and 1920, Albuquerque hosted at least 19 different companies which published postcards of local views.  Stationers were a logical source of unique views of the city, and owners such as S.E. Newcomer, E.J. Strong and O.A. Matson were prominent.  Printers like Albright and Anderson and the Commercial Printing Company also issued postcards, as did curio dealers like Benham’s, Wright’s, and John Lee Clarke.  The city even had a pharmacist, W.E. Bauer, who marketed tourist views of the city along with his pills and potions. At Botts Hall Special Collections Library, 423 Central Ave NE (northwest corner of Edith).

Talk by Nancy Tucker
Albuquerque?  Funny?  Ha!  You betcha!  Comic postcards by Albuquerque publishers.  From the 1930s into the 1960s, Albuquerque postcard producers big and small took on the tourist market with humorous postcards filled with stereotyped images of cowboys, Indians and tourist dudes.  We’ll look at cards, funny or not, by Babcock & Borough, Standley-May, Ward Anderson Printing, Herbert Hyde and even Fred Harvey.  (No, not THAT Fred Harvey!). At Botts Hall Special Collections Library, 423 Central Ave NE (northwest corner of Edith).

If you contact me:
I have changed the place where visitors to this website can make and reply to comments. This became necessary because comments were made on the various pages and so they could not be tracked properly. Comments should now be made at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE “FORUM & COMMENTS”, if you want other people to see them and reply (or directly to me at fmpatorni@earthlink.net) . I have disabled the comments feature on the other pages. The comments that you made on various pages in the past are in my personal log, I will try to shift them to the new page, but until then the old comments will remain on the page where they were originally made.

I reply directly to the comments by e-mail to the sender, as well as occasionally through this website.
