The Butterfly Place
At a glance, I would have thought that this was a photochrome postcard from the 1970s; it’s standard-sized (3½” x 5½”), and the photo shows a lot of older cars in the parking lot. But this Butterfly Palace Butterfly Place in Westford, Massachusetts has only been around since September of 1990:
“It is presently (sic) the only permanent seasonal indoor facility of its kind. Open from mid-April to mid-October. It features North American butterflies in its 3100 sq. ft. flight area. At any given time, the atrium contains up to 400 butterflies representing as many as 30 or more species. The full life cycle of butterflies and many colorful moths can be observed close-up.”
Thanks to Fred for putting so much thought into his choice of postcards to send to me; I like it very much.
