Item description

We are happy to be able to offer for your consideration this lovely view of the Rockville Bridge over the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA, published by Curt Teich co. Inc. of Chicago. Curt Teich, better known as Curteich, was the largest publisher of postcards in the world and produced postcards from all over the U.S. and Canada. They made for both their own distributors as well as for other postcard publishers. In this case J.B. Hoffman of Harrisburg, PA. was the publisher for whom Curteich made this card. J.B. Hoffman was in business from 1908 until 1948 and they were a leading publisher and distributor of view-cards in central Pennsylvania. These cards were produced in a variety of styles and techniques over the years with many printed by Curt Teich. The Rockville Bridge, at the time of its completion in 1902, was, and still remains, the longest stone masonry arch railroad viaduct in the world. It was constructed between 1900 and 1902 by the Pennsylvania Railroad, it has forty-eight 70-foot spans, for a total length of 3,820 feet. The bridge crosses the Susquehanna River about 5 miles north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The eastern end is in Rockville and the western end is just south of Marysville. The front of this card features a white border, full color view of the bridge as it spans the River, The foreground depicts the tops of the trees on one side of the river and the hills and forest are visible on the distant far side. The bottom left, in the border bears the inscription, "Rockville Bridge and Susquehanna River, Harrisburg, PA." At the right corner is the Curteich ware number, "3A-H1397", which gives us the date of manufacturing as 1933. The back is a divided back card with the printer's info as the division and the publisher's info is along the left hand margin. This card is in near perfect condition with crisp, sharp corners, no creases, no extraneous marks in pencil, ink or marker, and no damage whatsoever to the card on either side. This postcard will look great among your collection of scenes of Bridges, views of the Harrisburg, PA region, views of rivers and bridges inร‚ Pennsylvania and Curt Teich postcards.
