This is a large letter greeting of Atlanta, Georgia. What caught my eye are the letters “A” and “T” below-
Notice how it looks like the same stone carving, but in “A” there are trees underneath of it and in “T” there is a pool underneath of it. I have seen before that sometimes publishers might add something extra to a postcard like trees or other scenic items. I was just surprised to see the same view altered on the same card!
In Atlanta there is a Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Park. It showcases Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson. It is the largest high relief sculpture in the world, larger than Mount Rushmore. It is 90 by 190 feet and is recessed 42 feet into the mountain. From pictures I was looking at, it seems as though there are trees that are underneath of it, as shown in the “A.” The physical carving was started in 1924 and wasn’t completed until the finishing touches in 1972.
What is also interesting is the fact that there are only 3 people in this memorial, but on the large letter postcard and some other postcards of the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial there are more than 3 people shown. This might be due to the fact that the original idea for the monument included seven central figures.
