Postcard Friendship Friday June 17


My last chrome postcard of this set, from a thrift store.
From the back:
Aerial view citrus tower, located on US Highway 27 at Clermont, Florida.  Elevator to the observation deck, 542 feet above sea level, where visitors may view numerous beautiful lakes and hills and thousands of acres of citrus groves."

Also this information: "New color card technique, R.A. Lasater, Apopka, Fla."

Has this Florida landmark disappeared like the Tiki Gardens at Indian Rocks Beach?
No!  It is still there, but I think the landscape has changed:

"The Citrus Tower stands unrivaled as a majestic and monumental tribute to Central Florida’s famed citrus industry and its lush subtropical groves. With the area’s changing economic climate, the Tower serves as a beacon guiding a burgeoning new business and population base to the scenic South Lake County region."

I am joining Beth for Postcard Friendship Friday.

I love how the tower rises from the lush green carpet of trees. What a beautiful landscape.

What a view that tower must provide, specially when the trees are heavily laden with fruit.
