Weather Bureau buildings as shown by postcards


From 1893 until 1918 the Weather Bureau constructed their own buildings.  These postcards present pictures of these buildings, giving a glimpse into the live of the buildings and the community in which they were located.  Remember, these are real postcards used to convey personnel messages.
