Scope and Contents:
The Richard Marchand Historical Postcard Collection contains approximately 1,200 35mm slide reproductions of postcard images depicting early twentieth century architectural and garden views of over 600 private estates throughout the United States. The collection includes views of estates owned by popular movie stars of the 1920s and 1930s, including Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Claudette Colbert and Buster Keaton.

A number of estates represented in the collection have been destroyed or subdivided over the years. Most of the postcard views indicate the name and location of a particular property, though few include specific captions or are dated. A small number of the views are black and white; the majority were made using various color lithographic properties. The collection does not include copies of the back of the postcards where messages and addresses would have been written.

Place:
Vestavia (Birmingham, Alabama)
United States of America -- Alabama -- Jefferson County -- Birmingham
General:
Vestavia was the 20-acre country estate of George B. Ward (1867-1940) located on the crest of Shades Mountain about six miles from Birmingham, Alabama. Ward was the 13th Mayor of Birmingham from 1905 to 1909, as well as a successful businessman and financier. As the mayor, Ward worked to establish city parks for the citizens to enjoy during their leisure time. Using plans designed by the Olmstead Firm and adding athletic fields, Ward developed Green Springs Park, which was renamed George Ward Park following his death in 1940.

Wards home, built in 1925, was a replica of the Temple of Vesta inspired by his interest in the classics and travels to Greece and Rome. The home's location on Shades Mountain afforded an exceptional view overlooking the city of Birmingham and the surrounding countryside. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and carried the carried the Greco-Roman theme with doghouses shaped like miniature Roman temples, models of ancient ships floating in the pond, and a gazebo-type Temple of Sibyl, which was copied from a structure twelve miles from Rome in Tivoli. Ward opened the house and gardens to the public for tours on special occasions. He was also known to host elaborate themed parties complete with servants costumed as Roman Soldiers, young ladies dancing as the barefooted Vestal Virgins, and the guests dressed in togas.

A residential community grew around the estate and is now a large suburban municipality known as Vestavia Hills. The image of home became so iconic to the people of the city that its image was used in the design for the city's logo. Following Ward's death in 1940, the home was sold. After nearly a decade of neglect the home was converted to a restaurant and tourist attraction for a brief time before being sold to the Vestavia Hills Baptist Church. The once pagan temple was used to hold church services until 1971, when it was razed and replaced with a new sanctuary. The Sybil Temple gazebo was donated to the Vestavia Hills Garden Club, who had it installed above US Highway 31.

Persons associated include: George B. Ward (former owner, 1923-1940), William Leslie Welton (architect, 1923-1925), Vestavia Hills Baptist Church (former owner).

Massey Garden (Birmingham, Alabama)
United States of America -- Alabama -- Jefferson County -- Birmingham
General:
This property is featured in Jefferson County Historical Commission. Birmingham and Jefferson County Alabama. Charleston, SC : Arcadia Publishing Incorporated, 2010.
The Massey estate, which included a 20-room, Beaux-Arts style mansion and elaborate gardens, was the home of businessman Richard W. Massy in Birmingham, Alabama beginning around 1905. The gardens were designed and overseen by men hired by Massey from Europe. On the east side of the estate were elaborate Italian-inspired gardens with fountains and imported statuary. Behind the house a terraced garden surrounded by a seat-height wall was planted with aromatic plants surrounding a large marble fountain. The gardens could be accessed from the house through glass doors leading onto the terrace, which was draped with wisteria. The Massey family hosted many large parties, dances, and small gatherings in the manicured gardens considered by many to be one of the city's loveliest locations. The estate later housed the Birmingham College of Music and was then home to Dr. and Mrs. James Crenshaw, until it was finally razed in the 1960s to make way for the construction of an expressway through the city.

Persons associated include: Richard W. Massey (former owner), Joseph Clifford Turner (architect, 1904), Birmingham College of Music (former owner), Dr. and Mrs. James Crenshaw (former owner).
