Greetings From Phoenix

"The Most Modern Building in the Southwest, Adams at First "

"Looking North on Mill Ave, Tempe Arizona"

"... The cards this collection are souvenirs of a Phoenix from almost 60 years ago. You can just barely make out Hayden Mill in the postcard below depicting downtown postwar Tempe. It’s the white smudge clear at the end of the right side of the street. Followers of more recent history will find the view of the Central Avenue post office more interesting. It was at this location that longtime Phoenix celebrity Cris Kirkwood beat up a security guard, gaining in the process a prison sentence and bullet in his back."
Derrick, King of Bostworld, has a nice and colorful batch of old postcards from his hometown Phoenix up on his site.
