Animated Choo Choo Train

Greeting From Lordsburg, Hidalgo Co., New Mexico - “Air Capital of the Southwest” - The traveler arriving in Lordsburg after a long journey from the East or West is immediately impressed by the hospitality of this typical western town. The county is named for General Miguel Hidalgo y Costillo, who was leader of the war of Mexican Independence, and the town was settled first by the Spaniards seeking gold. It became a mecca for American prospectors, miners and cattlemen, and to this day this influence prevails. The altitude is 4,245 feet and is considered the most equable climate in the United States, and exceptionally healthful. - Genuine Curteich-Chicago 'C.T.Art-Colortone'[ Text On Back Of Above Postcard ]
