From Gerald L. Karwowski’s book, Racine: Public Square. This old photograph reproduction was produced by the E. A. Bishop Postcard Company, Racine’s largest postcard publisher. It was copied from a late-1850s view of Racine’s public square. It shows the first Greek Revival style Racine County courthouse built in 1838 (right) and the First Baptist church (left).
5 thoughts on “E. A. Bishop Postcard Company”
I have a postcard by E.A. Bishop of Moonlight on Lake Mendota Foot of Park Street in Madison, Wi. 601A.
Do you know the date of that?
Probably 1905-1920. That was the the heyday of these postcards.
what do the numbers on the postcards mean?
From what I understand, the numbers show the order in which the photos were taken.
