Independence Hall: Hold To Light Post Card
Here we have one of my favorite types of post cards: A "Hold-To-Light" post card. You see, when you take the post card and hold it up to a light (in any dark room), there are areas (usually windows) that allow light to pass through, and it goes from being a day light scene, to a night time scene.
This one is showing Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA. Along with people strolling the street (what is now Chestnut Street, no doubt). And look at what might be a Model T Ford automobile coming down the street from the right-hand border of the card.
The areas that light up are all of the windows, the clock and upper tower, and even the moon. Yes, the moon lights up in the night sky!
