Highway Scene & Beds of Roses - Tyler, Texas

The vintage Greyhound Bus is what attracted me to this postcard, but it is the roses that are the attraction in Tyler, Texas. Tyler is a city in east Texas named after President John Tyler and nicknamed "The Rose Capital of America.”

Roses have long been a major industry in Tyler. Tyler is the site of America's largest rose garden, an annual Rose Festival, and a Rose Museum. The 79th Texas Rose Festival, scheduled for October 18-20, 2012, will celebrate the places, faces and facets of the Orient.

There is a Greyhound Station in Tyler, so it is still possible to travel to Tyler by Greyhound Bus.

  1. There is something magnificent about the card - all that colour. One wonders whether Greyhound buses still pass those fields.
