It just dawned on me that it looks like most all of these postcards were painted while the artist was sitting in a hot air balloon or something. For every postcard I would bet that there is or was a photograph that matches it. Photographers probably went up in planes, cranes or helicopters to get the pics then artists painted from the pics. The only other way would be to paint while looking at an architects scale model.

Does any one have any info on how these were done?
