Reader has question on postcard with Columbia, Kentucky on it

2012-02-07 - ????? - Photo from Doug Beard.
The scene is almost pretty enough to be in Adair County. And there's an implication that it is. More likely it's not. Doug Beard asks about it, "Saw this postcard for sale on-line....any ideas where this scene supposedly would have been in Columbia....I wouldn't even have a guess." A postcard collector could probably give an indepth answer. It appears to be the effort of some Big Time hustler who printed gazillions of the cards, and then sold them in small amounts, with the name of whatever town a souvenir or tourist town would have wanted overprinted on the cards. It would be interesting to know where there is any basis for the scenes at all. But for an indepth answer, we'd hope to hear from a well trained deltologist. -EW
