Color postcard with divided back and white border, postally unused. Caption from back of card: "Bull Street Savannah GA. Looking toward Savannah Harbor. Every foot of this famous thouroughfare is rich in historic interest. On this street are some of the antebellum mansions." In the foreground of the card is the Hotel DeSoto with the domed roof in tact prior to the fire in 1925. As a result of the fire, the roof on the tower was rebuilt as a flat roof. In the distance is the new City Hall building and a number of Savannah's early skyscrapers.
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. Cards produced from 1905-1926 often did not have a letter code.
