All this week I'm celebrating the American roadside. From Monday through Friday I'm opening up my postcard collection to showcase images from our nation's Age of Mobility.
Quoting a handwritten note on the back of the (May 18, 1951) card: "Dear Mama - Drove clear down the East Coast to Key West, Florida. Now we are coming back up the West Coast and are here at Punta Gorda, Fla. We are on our way to New Orleans, Louisiana. Tell Smokey hello."
