Savannah (Ga.) – Aerial Views.
Color postcard, no border, with view from City Hall looking south at the obelisk on Johnson Square and down Bull Street. Divided back with no caption, postally unused. The tall white building on the right was the Germania Bank, also known as the Blun Building. It was the first of Savannah's tall office buildings. Designed by Hyman W. Witcover and completed around 1904, this building originally was located at Bull and Congress Streets, but was razed in 1975. The building directly behind it was the Liberty Bank and Trust, also designed by Witcover. It was two stories taller than the Blun Building.
The card was published by Valentine and Sons. Originally a Scottish publisher, they opened a New York office in 1907. The cards were still printed in Great Britain and used a lithographic halftone process that had a distinct look. Postcards were numbered and have a three digit prefix and a three digit suffix.
203 458 JV appears on lower right corner of front of card
