1955 MUH Alabama Postcard to CJU's -July 28

Montgomery, Alabama postcard - mailed 1955.  
Captioned: Dexter Avenue, looking east showing State Capitol Montgomery, Ala.  Dexter Avenue is the main business street of the city.  The fountain in the center of the square was erected in 1886.  It was on exhibition at the Atlanta Exposition and the purchase price was seven thousand dollars.  The State Capitol shown in the distance was the first Capitol of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis being inaugurated President on the steps of this building.

Weds enroute to Tallahassee [or Lakeland?]

* a star marks spot, arrived here at 9 & visited till 11:15.  Went thru Capitol & Kids sat in Gov's chair.  We asked a lady where his office was and she . . . gave the kids each a marble from a bowl.  The town has lovely homes, we enjoyed the museum & "Little White House" of the Confederacy.  We just about cooked alive yesterday.  Some cooler today we got in such a storm thru Birmingham & we didn't see the city (6-6:30) Saw the "Vulcan" [statue] on top of Red. Mt.
