Virginia Intermont College



This card was printed in 1950.  The factory-added color is kind of slapdash, but it’s probably reasonably true.  The salesmen made pretty accurate color notes.

Begun in Glade Spring in 1884, the college in Bristol closed in 2014.

Hermitage Art Company in Chicago was founded in 1924, mainly printing religious items, but soon were also in the postcard business (and as of this date, still cranking stuff out).  This card probably dates from the late 20s to early 30s.  The style seems to indicate that, since it’s in the white border era, pre-linen finish.  One cent carried on to the 50s, so that’s no help.  I wish dealers wouldn’t scrawl things on the backs of cards.
