I’ve posted some Buckhorn Curio Store/Saloon postcards in the past, but I think this is the first one I’ve seen that calls it “Albert’s.” I recently came across a slew of cool Buckhorn cards I hadn’t seen before, and I’ll share them over time. There’s a description on the back:
Front View and part of Interior of Albert’s Buckhorn Saloon. The saloon that made San Antonio, Texas famous. Note some of the many Rattlesnake Rattle designs to be seen here.
The back also indicates the postcard to have been published by Nic Tengg, San Antonio, Texas, and says it’s Copyright 1915 by Albert Friedrich.

The swimming pool in San Pedro Park, San Antonio, Texas. I think this is card is really striking, as the swimmers are clearly “real” people, so unlike the generic subjects that populate so many postcard views.
