Reads: Vue de la Riviere, Maysville, Ky.

Personal postcard sent by someone traveling by boat from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to Memphis, Tennessee. Shows a bird's eye view of 1907 Maysville Kentucky, pre-suspension bridge. The suspension bridge was built in the 1930s.

This was in 1907, and though I can pick out some buildings that are no longer there, and of course there's no bridge, the surprising thing is that it doesn't look that much different today.
