I happened to move there shortly after the original Brown Derby Restaurant, the one shaped like a derby hat, was demolished. One evening, after walking around the Ambassador Hotel, I ventured north a...

  The Giant Redwoods       I love this old postcard; it has been in my collection for years. This tree had been hallowed out by fire; allowing one to step inside of a giant redwood – or park your car! Our fascination with the giant redwoods, of northern California, began when they...

Play Ball!   As the All-Star game gets ready to start, I share with you the only postcard I bought, when we visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame, at Coopers Town, in the autumn of 1991. I had seen A League of their Own, and was thrilled to see some small mention of...

Paris     Perhaps I am just feeling the passing years, but I find myself more nostalgic about certain people and places – including Europe in general, and Paris in particular.     It is true that I have read too much about and by the American expatriates and those lost generations, the experiences...

The Petrified Forest     The first souvenir Kate and I ever bought was a small slice of petrified wood, in Arizona, thirty years ago. It was a stop, on that first road trip, which I had wanted to make, as I remembered visiting the national park, as a child, when we lived in Winslow,...

Grand Central Station, 1926 This post card, of a photograph taken by Kenneth Dudley Smith, of Grand Central Station, in New York City, is one of my favorite images; and perhaps would be better served in Art than here.

Stone Mountain     Let me start by saying that regardless of what those who initiated this project may have desired, the result, as it stands today is a work of art, worth the detour. While American man-made wonders are not as ancient, as in other parts of the world, they are no less...

The Ducklings Dressed Up For Winter     This is not an old post card, in the least, but it certainly is one of my most favorite of images. I love Nancy Schon’s bronze duckling sculpture, which is a tribute to Robert McCloskey’s story, Make Way for the Ducklings.  The sculpture lives at the...
