Flashback Friday

Were you able to guess the place and year of today’s Flashback Photo?

Yep, that’s Union Station (we know, pretty obvious), opened in 1892. The year is less certain. This postcard was dated 1906 and it appears it is a colorized photograph. Check out these interesting sites on old postcards here and here. The second link may provide you with hours of procrastination material.

Have a great weekend!

    A Coupla’ of things come to mind, Matt…

    First it’s obviously our beloved Union Station
    Second it appears to be a painting, the name, I have no idea
    The year…guessing late 1800’s

      Don, it is indeed our beloved Union Station. And this is actually a postcard (maybe it was a painting that turned into a postcard). Anyways, the postcard has a date of 1906, so we’ll go with that for the answer. Thanks for guessing and have a great weekend.
