Wyoming? - Wy Not !!!

Today we visit the Great State of Wyoming. Admitted to the Union on July 10, 1890 as the 44th State. These are some of my favorite vintage postcards picturing historic views of the past. ENJOY!

Cheyenne, Wyoming - Capitol avenue, one of the main thoroughfares of the city, runs from Union Pacific Station and transportation center to the Capitol Building.

Main Street of Lander, Wyoming. "Where rails and trails begin."

Business section of Douglas, Wyoming. County seat of Converse County.

Frontier Days Parade - Cheyenne, Wyoming - More than a mile long, the Frontier Days Parade winds its way through downtown Cheyenne, in the morning. Truly a moving pageant of the Old West.

Cody, Wyoming - Sheridan Street with Rattlesnake Mountain in background. Cody is the gateway to the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park and is famous for its museums and historical attractions related to Buffalo Bill.

I love those "main street" shots! So far I've never been to Wyoming, but I hope I'll get there someday.
