Favorite Postcards

This postcard was mailed in 1906. Its a Raphael Tuck Card from the Valentines Series. The sender wrote a poem at the top (upside down) in pencil which reads....
When you are near.
I've bliss supreme.
I feel contentment glow
I wish no other joy to feel
Or Happiness to know

I like the art deco look of this postcard. No other details given.

This is the Wawona Tunnel Tree. This is a touring car showing the tourists the sites around Yosemite National Park.

I love your postcards. The one you have with the family in the station wagon could have been our family when I was a girl!! Same type car and outfits.

Thanks for posting them. When I get around to it, I have some beauties from my Mom to post. I'll let you know when I post them.

Keep it up. They are so beautiful to look at.
