Genuine Curteich-Chicago “C.T. American Art”

The description states:

The magnificent $4,000,000 Capitol Building, located on a bluff 150 feet above the Missouri River, was completed in 1918. The building, surmounted by a dome of unusual beauty and surrounded by graceful fluted columns is an excellent example of Renaissance architecture. World-famous murals and a great resources museum attract thousands of visitors.

–The building is more reminiscent of Greek Revival than the Gothic of the Renaissance, and such buildings are typical of statehouses throughout the country.

This postcard was used and is dated 1 July 1953.
