Postcard Friendship Friday - postcard sent to Suicide Corner
A linen card titled D.C. 152 - Flamingo Hotel, Miami Beach, Fla.
Appropriately pink, this hotel has a boat dock but not a beach in front of it. Given the snow and ice here in the midwest, I'd happily stay in the Flamingo and walk to the beach.
Postmarked Jan.16 1948, and addressed to Mr and Mrs Julian Robin and family, Suicide Corner, Sanford Rd. No. Westport, Mass. Yes, really.
"Hollywood, Fla. Staying in this town. Quite a place. Gets hot in the daytime but you freeze at night. No Oldsmobiles down here only Chevrolets, Clint."
An intriguing message to be sure!
Thank you Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday!
