City Club of Denver Postcard Set
[Denver]: City Club of Denver, 1930. 34 Hand-colored gravure postcards [9 cm x 14 cm] All in nice condition. Divided backs with no writing or postmarks with the original printed envelope. Printed for the City Club of Denver. Complete set. Scans of all views available. Collaboration between the City Club of Denver and the membership of the Denver Camera Club. Several views from Clark Blickensderfer [12], the then president of the DCC, and Laura Gilpin [6]. Laura Gilpin (1891-1979) attained international recognition as photographer and her images of the Navajo and Pueblo peoples of the four corners area offer an important record of these cultures. She excelled in a field that up to the point, had largely been the purview of men. Western landscape photographer Ansel Adams praised Gilpin by remarking that she had a "highly individualistic eye." "These cards, reproduced in the highest quality of photogravure printing from well-taken photographs of buildings, parks, statuary and views in the City of Denver, as well as of Colorado mountain scenery, have been assembled and produced by the Fine Arts Committee of The City Club, in order that the best quality of postal cards may be available for purchase of discriminating buyers." - from the envelope.
