Rare Pueblo, Colorado Rppc. Jack Root Liquor Store, Phillips Gas Station. 1940s:
This is a rare real photo postcard (RPPC) of the E. S. (Jack) Root
liquor store and Gas Station, which was located five miles south of Pueblo.
Stem Beach was a location, but not a town. It may have received its name
because it is near several Colorado Fuel & Iron (CF&I) reservoirs. Pueblo
is the seat of Pueblo County. It is located south of Colorado Springs and
Denver. The image shows the brick building with a Coors beer sign, and a
Phillips 66 Gas sign. A windmill can be seen in the distance. In nearly forty
years of collecting Colorado postcards, this is only the third copy of this
card I’ve seen. The card was not mailed, but it has an EKC stamp box that dates
it in the 1940s. It is in good to very good condition with age-related
corner/edge wear; there a few spots on the front. This will make a nice
addition for a person who collects Stem Beach, Pueblo, Pueblo County, Coors
Beer, Phillips 66, gas station, roadside, and/or Colorado postcards. The card
was not mailed, but has an AZO stamp box that dates it around 1910. This is one
of the cards from my 35+ year Colorado postcard collection that I am selling on
. I scanned the card outside the margins so you can see the corners and
edges. I will issue a refund for postcards that are not as described. I am a
registered Colorado postcard dealer, so I am required to charge Colorado
residents a 2.9% sales tax. US postage is $3.50 (includes tracking) and
International First Class postage is $13.60 (also my cost). I will combine
postage for up to three cards for the prices shown. If you purchase multiple
postcards, please wait until I can send you an invoice with combined postage.
