The LaGuardia Field Series Checklist
by Larry Myers
The LaGuardia Field series of postcards was designed and produced by Harry H. Baumann of New York City. The series consists of 21 postcards, in color, on linen postcard stock. The scenes depict aircraft and sights associated with LaGuardia Field during the heyday of the DC3. The cards had two sets of numbers, the standard 1 through 21, and a cataloging number of four digits preceded by the letter "E". Apparently, the scenes were derived from photographs taken by W. Hoff, the "Official Photographer, LaGuardia Field", as real photo postcards of the same views occasionally surface.  Here's the list of the LaGuardia Field cards:
