Just received the September Reflector and skimmed through it with a more thorough reading over the next few days. I have to say the back cover is stunning. The BELLE OF THE BENDS has long been a favorite of mine. I've seen many "colored" post cards of steamboats which reminds me of the nice job Capt. Steve Huffman does every year on the HSPS calendar covers. I plan to do more research on this topic as it's peaked my interest but quickly, when did coloring black and white photos come into being. I am sure there are others on here who collect post cards that can tell me more. Also enjoyed John Fryants New Orleans on the cover. Kudo's once again to David and Jonathan on a banner reflector. Sorry I will have to miss the meeting this year to see John's work in person.
