Old Twin Falls Postcards On Ebay Reveal A Different Era
The history in Twin Falls is so rich and deep, you could spend months exploring it all. If you don't have months to spare, here's a real quick way to get a glimpse back at what Twin Falls used to be.
I have found some amazing historic Twin Falls postcards on Ebay. Some are turn of the 20th century era pictures of this area like you've never seen it before. Here are a few of my favorites.
One of the things I love about this card is what is written on the back. "This is not the nice part of town".
If you like horses, you'll love this one. Wonder how those horses would feel about Blue Lakes and Pole Line today?
The back of this one says "Twin Falls Municipal Swimming Pool is maintained for its citizens and offers wonderful relaxation for young and old". You can practically hear the old 1940's newsreel music that used to play in the theater behind phrases like that.
Love the cars in this one. Prominently featured on the right is the Rogerson Hotel and you can also see the old coffee shop there, too. On the back of the card, Twin Falls is described as an agricultural community with a booming population of almost 20,000. A few more people here now.
This one is postmarked 1927 and shows Balanced Rock before it had the cement applied to repair the bottom.
Think Thousand Springs is awesome now? Check out all the water from back in 1910. Wow.
