Before I move too far away my time in Pueblo, I’d like to say a little something about how much I enjoyed the city itself. It always warms my heart to see any city or town, small or large, take an interest in its history and preservation. Sunday night, my Dad drove my Mom, Eric and me around the town so we could hop out and take pictures of old hotels and motels, churches, neon signs, the county courthouse. (Check out my Instagram pictures here.) It was a great way to end the trip and it made me want to find out more about Pueblo’s history.
As I once did with my hometown of Independence, Kansas, I compiled an album of vintage Pueblo postcards that I found on the internet. Many of the structures in these century old postcards look pretty much the same which is a testament to, among other things, the work of the Pueblo Historic Preservation Commission. So, if you love Pueblo, or architecture or history or just old postcards, please check out these great pictures.
