Raleigh Tavern and Colonial Coach, Williamsburg, Va.

A 1932 postcard advertises the recently rebuilt Raleigh Tavern at Colonial Williamsburg, which served as a meeting place for radical burgesses when royal governors disbanded the House of Burgesses. On the reverse, the caption notes that "one of Williamsburg's best known taverns during the 18th century & has been completely rebuilt, largely on original foundations, and furnished in comformity with ancient inventories."
