Downtown Denver

This is a post card I received from my sister on one of her many business travels.
This is a scene of downtown Denver.
I think it is a gorgeous photo. 
It's picture perfect.
My sister is so sweet to take the time to write such detailed letters on a small postcard.
I love finding these in my mailbox.

Jackson Hole, WY 2006

This isn't a vintage card, however, I love ALL post cards.
This is a scene from Jackson Hole, Wyoming and it is a card that I personally sent to my employees while I was on vacation in 2006.
Jackson Hole was extremely cold while we were there and we stayed one night.
It was a cute little town with all kinds of shops and restaurants, etc.
I recall buying a bunch of caligraphy pens while I was in one of the shops,
and I also bought some silver stones that had words on them such as
Dream and Believe
I wish I had taken the time to write more
and to say thank you in a bigger way.

Holiday Inn 1970

We all know this hotel.  It really hasn't changed too much in 35 + years.
No history needed on this one.
The post card isn't very attractive and there's nothing special about the Holiday Inn,
However, I wanted this post card because it is a hotel icon that represents middle America.
The note is short and sweet.
"Driving fine. Everyone is so nice- Love, Dorothy"

Balboa, Ca. 1970

Ah, doesn't this remind you of a beach scene from a Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello Movie?
I really like this post card.  There is nothing better than summer travels and this photo
expresses the fun and relaxation of vacation.
This post card is postmarked September 20, 1971.

Tinker Swiss Cottage 1919

This Swiss Cottage is located in Rockford Illinois and was built in 1865 by businessman and one-time Mayor Robert Hall.  Today the cottage is a museum open to the public and filled with original furnishings.
If interested in the history you can go to the official website to learn more.
The setting is so serene and beautiful.  Doesn't it just make you want to take a stroll around the property?
Postmarked September 8, 1919.
