Postcard Lot 850 Old Chrome ROADSIDE CALIFORNIA Motels

DESCRIPTION: This is a lot of about 850 old "chrome" postcards of California motels from the estates of two life-long collectors. Cards represent motels from all areas of the state for the period of the 1950s-60s and into the 70s.

TYPE OF POST CARDS: This lot consists entirely of lithographed "chrome" postcards.

DUPLICATION: Duplication by chance.

SIZE: Standard (approx. 3 ½" x 5 ½" )

AGE/ERA: Approximately 1950s -1970s. Because of their "age," chrome postcards have sometimes been considered as unworthy by a lot of collectors and dealers in the hobby. However, considering that the 1950s are now well behind us, the reality is that many of the scenes of that era have been torn down and paved over (especially in California). These cards provide a look back at the California roadside in the not-too-distant past.

CONDITION: The majority of cards are in good to very good condition. Cards are postally used and unused.
