A Study in Knees

This is such an interesting vintage postcard.  It is a color enhanced photograph - the title says
"Study in Knees at Cypress Gardens in Beautiful Florida."
Perhaps it's meant to be sexy - showing so much knee...

Vacation is over

I thought this was a humorous vintage card - it pretty much sums it up.
Now, to get back to reality.

Don't try this at home...

Another fun vacation card - you can see where my mind is... still on vacation!
This one depicts the Kwahamot Water Ski Shows in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.
Do miss it the next time you're there!

Ocean Girls

Another fabulous vintage vacation postcard.  This one shows four friends running out of the ocean.  Notice the men in the background. 
What a great image!
Enjoy summer!

Wild, wild West

Maybe your vacation is taking you to the wild, wild west...

Enjoy Cattle Punching on a Jack Rabbit!

This is a great travel postcard featuring a supersized rabbit.  I guess it's meant to be funny, but it reminds me a of a B-horror sci-fi flick from the 60's.

Caption this!

Here is another faded old photo card....

The ladies on the bench didn't seem to have much detail, until I used the auto correct.  What a difference!  These two are perched on the ends of the bench, certainly to make way for a clear view of the house behind them.
The ladies are certainly enjoying the day in their fancy hats. And look at that estate behind them!  Wow!  What do you think they are talking about?

Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

"I don't mind living in a man's world
 as long as I can be a woman in it."
-Marilyn Monroe

This is a great vintage Marilyn Monroe photo card.  It's too bad it's damaged, but I still love the color and vibrant look that she has.  Printed on the back are the words, "Thinking of you."  I am not sure when the photo was taken, perhaps a Marilyn expert can help me out.  The card itself was mailed in 1972.
Today would have been her 85th Birthday.  Happy Birthday, Marilyn!
