Vintage Postcards of Las Vegas, Nevada
Curt-Teich Linen Era Cards


The Linen Postcard Era ranged roughly from the 1930's into the 1950's. These were interesting growth and development years for Las Vegas.

Curt-Teich postcards were all numbered, using a code that defined the date that the image on the postcard was captured. The bright colors, and historical significance of the images on these postcards, led me to collecting them. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and had seen many of these same images in my early years.

The following is a list of all of the Curt-Teich Linen postcards I have been able to identify or collect over the years - I'm sure there must be more.

Cards with checkmarks are in my collection ... BLUE checkmarks indicate I have extras to trade for cards I don't have. Click on the thumbnail icon to view a scanned image. Cards marked NB are non bordered cards, like the card at the left.

If you know of other Curt-Teich linen postcards, from Las Vegas, that are not on this list, I'd love to hear from you. Email me at: Las-Vegas-Postcards@earthlink.net

Another interesting series of Linen Era postcards was produced by Tichnor Brothers, which was published
by Smith & Chandler ... a store in Las Vegas. There is more on that series of postcards
here.

I have also compiled a list of Curt-Teich postcards for nearby Boulder City and Boulder Dam,
as well as a combined list of all the Curt-Teich linen postcards for
Southern Nevada.

I have arranged some of my favorite linen postcards into custom "folders" ...
topics include
Fremont Street, the Strip, Las Vegas at Night, and City Views.

There is also a folder for
Boulder Dam & Boulder City.
