The Kalakala, an historic and unique Washington State ferry constructed in an art deco style that operated in the Puget Sound between 1935 and 196

Wow.  I'd like to take that ferry and make a house out of it.

Here are some more pics and a postcard from the U.S.S. Huron's tour of the Philippines back in 1925 and 1926.

I sent myself one like this on a trip to Thailand.  One of the kings barges, in front of the current Grand Palace.

They have a whole fleet of antique royal barges - generally kept on display in a museum - that are bought out on very special occasions.

It would have been fun to eat at the Top of the Marine restaurant but unfortunately it closed back in 2001.  The vacated space was taken over by offices.  https://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/stories/2001/12/17/tidbits.html

Ellen really knows how to live it up.  She went through the Johnson Wax offices and the zoo, all in one day.

I like this old truck postcard but it's not part of my collection.  I couldn't find any information on it but the truck's sign points out the town of Truro in Cornwall, England.

Enjoy delicious Stouffer food!  You don't suppose they just warmed it up, do you?

Haha, I hadn't thought of that.  I'm still trying to figure out what Ellen found so fascinating about the Johnson Wax offices.

Your postcards are dream like, Tootsie.  Nice Willy Shakespeare sonnet below and to the right.

Normally, I can hardly see the color red but in this case the 'flames' are so vibrant that I can.
