I haven't been to Eugene, did not know it was hipped.

Yes, there is a big college, the University of Oregon in Eugene.  Famous for track and field events, and where the movie Animal House was filmed.

There used to be a railroad up to the top of Mt Tamalpais (in Marin County across the GG Bridge from San Francisco, elevation 2560').  There was at least one hotel up there and was a popular overnight excursion.  The RR track is now a hiking/biking trail.

Oh, I do like that movie still.

Did you miss the Eugene part?

Not at all.
I spent a week in Eugene, Oregon one day.
That's why I feel it had to be top 3 in Oregon.... at best!

I couldn't find any info on this postcard.  It might be  showing a member of royalty or the upper class visiting some less fortunates, or a well to do lady visiting her family.

This QSL card is actually quite shiny on the front because it has an interesting overlay design that doesn't show after being scanned.  You can see that the card was once taped to a wall at the top and bottom.  Those white areas are where the tape crumbled off the card.

A number of my QSL cards came from Bill Moline's tow truck office.  I figure they were taped to a wall or something.  I've seen pictures of service stations etc. where whole walls were covered with QSL cards.

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Hi!
Are you trying to upset my friend PolkaDot? Please don't, she is excellent and I don't want her to leave in an upset. Well, I don't want her to leave at all, upset or not but why upset such a sweetie? 
Thank you very much.
