Greetings From Park Rapids, Minn.

Big fish were a popular subject on comic postcards of the linen era. Postcards were sometimes imprinted with a location name. This one is imprinted with "Greetings From Park Rapids, Minn." It was sent from Park Rapids on July 30, 1947--65 years ago today.

The sender apparently was vacationing in the Park Rapids area, a popular vacation destination and the Gateway to the Mississippi River Headwaters at Itasca State Park. She wrote:
Dear Jeannie,
Well, I finally wrote that card you were nagging me about & will mail it with yours.
Have I ever been having fun. A ten yr. old gal is teaching me how to dive & swim--my aching muscles! Have I ever got a beautiful sunburn. I miss you.

  1. These are so amusing, not just the size of the fish, but the clothes the guy is wearing. I can't help but love the colors too.
