  1. So this must have been made from the full-size birds-eye view by landscape architect George Kessler which is on display at USM? I had no idea MDAH had this.

  2. I didn’t know this existed as a postcard until I saw it on eBay and almost has it before some evil person swooped in and outbid me at the last second. So then I went looking for it and found it in the Cooper Postcard Collection. Does the full-size view also give credit only to Hunt, not Kessler?

  3. So glad you found this! Files are packed for move to Colorado–will check on that in a few weeks. Or perhaps someone at USM will check on this for us. We know that the MSU birds-eye view was published in the Reveille. Makes we wonder if it was also published as a postcard.
