Any idea what location that was in Florida? It looks like Cypress Gardens although many of the gardens here look similar. Another photo from Cypress Gardens:

Wow, that pic looks quite a bit like the postcard.  I think you nailed it, Max.  I'm sure that the reverse of the card would have revealed the location, but I rarely save that back of a postcard that I'm not actively bidding on.

This cool looking motel is, or most likely was, situated near the town of Crookston, Minnesota.  On the direct route to Winnipeg, as the postcard states.

Sat nite.
This is our house for a
night, and is very nice.
We were in Winnipeg to
day, and spent several
hours on a nice beach
watching the children in
the water, and it has been
a real hot day.  Just had
supper, and have just
discovered that the TV. is out
of order, so we shall not be
up late.  Hope all is fine at
911.  Hello Buttons.  Love to
you                               all,
                                   Mom.


(Mom should have demanded a working TV.)

You are very welcome, anniem.  I really enjoy entering the mindset of people from long ago, by running their handwriting through my brain.  I realize now that being taught cursive handwriting in school wasn't a waste of time after all.  haha.

Really?

A radio guy here said his kids have not been taught it. We looked it up and it might be coming back. Likely not all got rid of it, maybe it was mostly here in calicrazyland.

edit: a good thing to be wrong about, I say.

So are signatures all in print for the younger ones now?
