This card might not win any photography competition awards but it nicely illustrates several topical areas of interest to different collectors. First there is the interest to Roadside America collectors then notice the Shell gas sign and gas pumps on the left in foreground. On the front right is a drugstore sign for the Show Low Drug Co, of interest to collectors of drugstore items. Further down the street on the right (click image for larger view) can be seen the sign for a bank. On the left, a motor lodge and of course there are cars for those you collect auto postcards. To round things out, Western or local town collectors may be interested in a card like this.
