This is a 1939 Genuine Curt Teich "C.T. Art-Colortone" vintage postcard from my maternal grandparents' collection. It was published by the Deseret Book Company of Salt Lake City, Utah. It shows Salt Lake City and the Wasatch Mountains looking east from inside an airplane. Hal Rumel is named as the photographer on the postcard.
Transcription from back of postcard:
Salt Lake City, the Capital of Utah, was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young and a company of "Mormon" pioneers. From a barren waste, this city has become one of the most beautiful in America.
Located in the heart of the intermountain region, it is referred to as the "Cross Roads of the West," the "Center of Scenic America."If you look closely, you can see the Salt Lake Temple in the postcard. It's on the left side. Do you see it? For those unfamiliar with the Salt Lake Temple, here's a photo of this beautiful temple. It may help you to locate it in the postcard.
Thanks for stopping by!
