Nancy Tucker brings us the third installment of her series on Albuquerque's postcard publishers.Between 1900 and 1920, Albuquerque hosted at least 19 different companies which published postcards of local views. Stationers were a logical source of unique views of the city, and owners such as S.E. Newcomer, E.J. Strong and O.A. Matson were prominent. Printers like Albright and Anderson and the Commercial Printing Company also issued postcards, as did curio dealers like Benham’s, Wright’s, and John Lee Clarke. The city even had a pharmacist, W.E. Bauer, who marketed tourist views of the city along with his pills and potions.
