I bought this inspiring Louis Koller postcard in 1973 in St. Gallen, Switzerland.  It combines geographical detail with fine art. 

 

I've collected other similar map postcards, but none of them seems to pack so much information into a 6 x 4 inch space.

 

Do any of you have something similar?

I might have, but it's at home, will see if I can scan it and post it.

This is another view of the same area by a different artist, looking north, the opposite direction.

Here's the rest of my collection.  This is two different interpretations of the same scene.

The two postcards probably date from the 1940s or 1950s.
