A collection of postcard images documenting the golden age of flowing artesian wells across the United States and the world, generally from the early 1900s and with a bias toward Texas. Also included, from time to time, are other water-related postcards.

A neat card with sadly no location info. The back says "caused by artesian wells" and "Ida". Probably a casing failure that eroded out a cavity that eventually sinkholed. Dang cool!
