1955 MUH Florida Postcard to CJU's -July 29

State Capitol, Tallahassee, Fla. postcard - mailed 1955.  Captioned: The State Capitol stands on a block-square knoll over-looking the business district.  It was completed in 1845, the year Florida became a State, and since that time numerous additions have been made to the original building.

According to Wikipedia a new Florida Governor's Mansion was built in 1956, and "many items in the first mansion were auctioned in 1955 to aid in furnishing the new mansion, raising $7,500."
