Church on the second from bottom card is the Queen of the Snows Catholic Church in Squaw Valley, California erected for the Winter Olympics some years ago. It appears that it has been painted white since the card was issued.

The postcard behind Saint Peter's, Vatican City, has what is called, a "deckled" edge.

GSW,
The edge of the postcard is not straight, but made of a series of half moon shapes, the edges, bumpy, these differ between manufacturers.
Postcard specialists may expand.

I understand that the deckled edge was intended to suppress curling; it was very common in photographic prints back in the day.

Cheers,

The second card is the Pyramid Del Sol Teotihuacan Mexico. The Pyramid of the Sun was completed about A.D.-C.E. 225. Well before the Aztecs took over the abandoned site.
