Parks -- Georgia -- Savannah.
Color postcard with no border and divided back. Caption from back: "This bright playground is used by hundreds of children in a low income area of Savannah. It is a product of The Georgia Plan, a community development program started in Savannah by Mills B. Lane, Jr. President of the Citizens and Southern Bank. The park is surfaced with astroturf, a synthetic grass, and is equipped with the latest types of permanent playground equipment." It appears that the cupola of the Barnard Street School is to the left and Chatham Square is just beyond the park.
This postcard was produced by the Curt Teich & Company. They utilized a variety of processes but the most common was a halftone lithographic process. They had elaborate numbering systems for their postcards. The numbers also often designated production processes. After 1930, card numbers began with a number corresponding to the last digit of the year it was published in. This was followed by a letter series for the decade. The beginning number for this card is 9 and the series code for the 1960s was DK. The printing process they used at that time was photochrome under the name Curteicolor 3-D Natural Color. This card was produced in 1969.
9DK-1117 appears in the stamp box.
