1940 Linen Postcard Chicago Palmolive Building by Night

This Curt Teich & Co postcard made for the J. O. Stoll Company of Chicago is a night glamour shot of what was then the "new" Palmolive Building. The back says, "Its two billion candle power beam is visible to aviators in the air as far east as east as Cleveland, Ohio, and as far south as St. Louis, Missouri."

The card #117 is postmarked and was sent in the 1940 to La Grande, Oregon with a one cent Washington stamp. It is 3 3/8" by 5 3/8" and in very good condition with fairly crisp corners.

The Palmolive Building is a 37-story Art Deco building on North Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Built by Holabird & Root, it was completed in 1929 and was home to the Colgate-Palmolive-Peet corporation.
