I wonder if it's just nostalgia that makes me like these cars more than modern ones?
Corporal Eveline Lapan, a WAC stationed in Orlando during World War II, writes home to her parents:
November 4, '45
Dear Ma + Pa,
Got here O.K. at 1:30 P.M. Had a nice trip. Will write letter later. Everything is different here. The girls only need 25 points to get out now, so plenty are leaving. Going to Lakeside with Marcello now.
Note that she spells her name as Eveline at the top of the card and Evelyn at the bottom. I'm not sure why. As much as I love stamps, There's something pretty fun about military personnel being able to send a card with "free" in place of the stamp.
Does anyone have an explanation for the 25 points to get out?
