Mt Tam is just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco.  There used to be a railroad line to this place.  The RR line is now a hiking/biking trail.

This is the first time I've noticed a time on the date stamp. Going to go look more carefully at the others now!
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.

Interesting to note that they had a graveyard shift at the Chicago post office.

I lived on the west side of Chicago until I was 16.  The old Post Office went over the expressway right as it ended going into downtown. You went under the post office and if the bridge wasn’t raised you could continue on into the Loop.

Are we having fun yet?

Yes, there are the occasional 3AM stamps, most others are afternoon.

There is a good chance that the lady appeared on other postcards with the same hairstyle.  To save money, the postcard photographers would use the same models, wearing the same clothes, (and hairstyles) on other photo shoots with different subject matter, all on the same day.
