US 89 postcard goals

We're going to keep a constant eye out for postcards relating to ALL of US 89.  Right now this postcard website is very heavy on Arizona scenes.  There really aren't too many scenes from the other states that we have yet found.  But we will keep looking and undoubtedly find more postcards to post here.

We haven't counted the cards we've found but we're guessing it is somewhere between 150-and 200.

Rather than scroll through, we made the grid above so you can simply click on a name and find what we've found.

Thanks for looking.

US 89 Flagstaff

Anyone who knows Flagstaff knows the above postcard is as bogus as a $3 bill. There never was a so-called "hotel court" that looked like this in Flagstaff.  The company apparently produced the card showing a photo of one of their properties elsewhere, probably in New Mexico.  Overnight visitors in the company's other properties would then purchase the card to impress their distant postcard recipient(s).  Below is the actual Flagstaff Park Plaza.  Many Thanks to John Grahame, US 89 Team Charter Member, for providing the two postcard views below.  (Red arrows and annotation added by US 89 Team Postcard Editor.)
