Palm Beach, Florida

The message sent to Ralph Jillson in 1945 reads:
This is where you should come and what a good time you would have swimming every day.

  1. Another great street scene Christine!! You've got me hooked on them now. I like that ivy green facade.

  2. I'll guess "Leonard" is the scrawled signature; I'd sure listen to other theories. Looks like the PT Cruiser's great-grandpa on the right. My uncle traveled to Florida in the 1920s and 1930s, and the handful of postcards he had showed a pretty exotic Florida. Jack/Youngstown

  3. I love it. I think I should go there as swimming in warm weather would be fun.

  5. Curb, what curb?? Say Honey, get me another beer outta the back seat... Oh, hello officer! Um, geeze, I thought it was diagonal parking here, not parallel, I sure am sorry- would you like a beer?

  6. "Palm Beach, April 10, 1945". Well, some locales during WWII were better than other locales.:-) Jack/Youngstown

  7. Lovely. And another of those wonderful American cards where you can almost feel the texture of the card itself.
