Item description

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this amazing Photo-Platin view of the Women's Residence area at Howard University in Washington, DC. This postcard is published by Curt Teich Co. Inc. of Chicago. Curt Teich was the large4st publisher of postcards in the U.S. and Began to publish in 1893. they developed a lot of different styles of cards and used a number of different processes to print their cards. This particular card was made using the Photo-Platin process, where the cards have a Greenish-Blue tint to their "black and white" views which gives them a stylish distinct kind of shading which leaves the view looking more formal and stiff. It also makes it harder to determine any fine detail in the view, and eliminates most of the cast shadows from the sunlight. This card features on the front a view of the three buildings of the women's residence area with a view of three larger buildings, each with a cupola. They surround a quad with pathways through it and a view of the Alumni Gate is in the foreground. At the top center is the caption, "Women's Residence Area" and at the bottom center is, "Howard University -- Washington, D.C." The C-T Ware Number, D-5137, is at the bottom right. The back is a divided back card with the publisher's info as the division. This item is in good condition with all four corners slightly rounded and there is a small amount of foxing on both the front and back. Although this card was never posted in the mail it is apparent that a child managed to scribble on the back. This item will be a nice addition to your collection of Curt Teich postcards, views of universities of America and views of Washington D.C.
