This 1960 postcard was purchased by me when I went to the Capitol with my family during July of that year. I sent it home with a note on the back to my grandparents, James Dolphus "Doc" Gailey and Edna Puckett Gailey and my youngest sister, Ann.
Back of card:
TK-122 - Texas State Capitol
The story of this fabulous building is as romantic as a novel. Built in 1888 of pink granite from Granite Mountain at Marble Falls, Texas, it is the largest State Capitol Building in the world and second in size to the Capitol of The United States.
