An Outsider Art Black Americana Postcard

July 12th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Black Americana Folk Art, or Outsider Art, Seen at a Gulf Gas Station in Houston, Texas

For collectors of black Americana vintage postcards, it doesn’t get much better than this! Collectibles which depict every-day life in the black community are scarce, and this old black history postcard shows the proud owner of a 1952 Pontiac, which he has decorated in a folk art, or outsider art, manner. This great image was made in 1973 at a Gulf gas station in Houston, TX and is in near-mint condition. It has cross-appeal to the roadside America, or roadside Americana, collector and is also an interesting petroliana collectible.
