Map: Texas Shape Wooden Postcard

This Texas shape wooden postcard has a picture of the San Jacinto Monument, which is a 567.31-foot (172.92 m) high column. It is the tallest masonry column in the world and is topped by a star symbolizing the Lone Star State. The monument is a memorial to all those who fought to win the independence of Texas.

This card has the date Aug 15th 1943 written on the back. It required a 1-1/2 cent stamp for mailing, which was the third class rate for 2 ounces.
