Christ Church, where Washington worshipped. / Alexandria, Va." showing its exterior in vertical format, red caption underneath; post card with undivided back published by Foster Reynolds, mailed OCT 15 1906 at Mount Vernon on the Potomac (clear cancel, DPO, 1878 - 1928) to Captain C.

A. & Mount Vernon Railway, unused, light album marks on back, long but faint internal crease, wear near lower left front corner. More fully the electric railroad company to which the back refers was the Washington, Alexandria & Mount Vernon Railway. Established in 1892, it merged with another railroad on October 17 1910. Its lines were important because they encouraged the growth of the streetcar suburbs of Washington DC. Google their full name & you will not get a single postcard in only about 10 returns. $6.00 vcr

Route No. 1 / 2 Miles South of ALEXANDRIA, VA. / 5055-29" showing its central group of bungalows, circa-1929 post card with much later mailing at Rhoadesville Virginia, trivial wear to the top corners, tiny bottom corner crease, light toning near the left front edge. Check your albums; they put out many different, but the word 'bungalows' on the back was contrary to the image they wanted to project. So not many of these exist. $3.75 v(a)mr

A rare postcard, probably because there are 2 inaccuracies in the caption: located in Appalachia Virginia, not Big Stone Gap, the tunnel is actually the world's second shortest railroad tunnel--as any resident of Crandull Tennessee could tell you!
