Burton Frasher

Burton Frasher was born in Colorado in 1888 and in the early 1900's he had a photo studio in Wapato, Washington later moving to Lordsburg, California and still later settling in Pomona, Los Angeles County, California.

He was active in California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico from the mid-teens into the early 1950's. His real photo postcards will often have his imprint on the front of the cards, reading Frashers. Inc., Pomona, California.

I love vintage shots of various "main streets", with all of the signage, storefronts and old cars.

Went on Google street view and visited each of those postcard locations...

I'm happy to report that there was at least one or two buildings from the old pics still holding on.

Please post more postcards!

Thanks---
