We'll be stopping in...
Cape Cod, Massachusettes
then making our way up to Bangor, Maine. It's the 40s, we're driving with the top down on our 1940 Lincoln Zephyr...
Wind blowing through our hair as we enjoy the sights and sounds around us. Perhaps you're wearing a scarf so your "do" stays in place?
The nation is at war and most of our men are off fighting, but for this brief moment, we're going to just enjoy our time on the road.
I've a fascination with vintage post cards and when I found these they just "hit" me and I had to have them. Perhaps it's knowing my father was in Germany during the dates that appear on these cards, perhaps it's just nostalgia. I just can't say, but as with anything, life continued and it seems all strived for normalcy (as we do now).
This is what is written on the back of the Cape Cod postcard...
Some of what it says:
Yesterday i got to thinking of the happy visits you and Chas used to make on me. I did enjoy them so much. I have only one roomer now. Expect more soon, but Labor Day is not far away. Hope you have had a lot of fresh vegetables.
Sent August 16, 1943. Notice the "1-cent" stamp
