I have a small set of unused chrome postcards of Florida places, which I'll share over the next few weeks.
This style of printing is more prevalent in the 60's and 70's in the USA - I am not sure about the rest of the world. I like linen postcards much better but these kinds of card have their own tacky charm, and are certainly part of the vernacular American culture.
This postcard pictures the Comfort Inn Motel in St. Peterburg Florida, which features "color TV, pool, phones available, major credit cards accepted." Also on the back: "On US Hwy 19 (34th Street) a mile north of Skyway Bridge which crosses Tampa Bay at its entrance to the Gulf of Mexico, 5 minutes from the Gulf Beaches and adjacent to shopping center." Printed by the Tom Brown Card Co., Clearwater, FLA.
Classic roadside motel architecture, with chain link fence - how attractive! At least there is a fence to stop toddlers from drowning. I know someone recently showed one of these old postcards and the pool did not have a fence around it - you could drive your car right into the pool.
I am linking in with Beth at Postcard Friendship Friday.
