Description

Recto and verso of postcard illustrated with a view of the northeast exterior elevation of Bruton Parish Church. Part of a series produced by the Albertype Co. of Brooklyn, New York, for Colonial Williamsburg, the card is an example of early efforts to promote Williamsburg as tourist destination. This photo pre-dates the final 1939 restoration of the church, when such features as the exterior shutters, the stove chimney, and louvered window grills on the tower were removed to bring the exterior back to its 18th-century appearance.
