Iceberg Lake

Colder than a witch's Grand Tetons

Postcard Friendship Friday (PFF)Here’s a little something to cool you off on this hot summer’s Postcard Friendship Friday: “Iceberg Lake, Altitude 11,500 Ft., Trail Ridge Road between Estes Park and Grand Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.”  It was in fact posted from Estes Park, CO on 3 August 1940; I guess somebody else was trying to cool off, too.  But we’ll never know who.

Maybe they thought the view spoke for itself

This is a Curt Teich “C. T. Art-Colortone” linen postcard, number 6A-H288, published in 1936.  Odd that there’s no message, but it does happen from time to time.  I received a postcard myself just last week (Update: correction — two weeks ago — Ed.) with no message; I was very put out about it.

    Wonderful card with a beautiful view. I’m with you. I love the message on the back of the card as much as the picture on the front.

    It is, I grant you, a beautiful card of a beautiful scene, however I’m quite cool enough, thank you. And yes, it’s high summer here too.

    I have no idea what an RSS feed is, and I also know that the Grand Tetons are nowhere near Estes Park, but I also know a good postcard when I see one. I have a friend who’s commissioned me in the past to produce a National Postcard Week postcard by the name of Tom Mulvaney. His primary interest is Montana Real Photo postcards, but on his way to putting together one of the largest collection on MT postcards he’s acquired quite a few others that have absolutely nothing to do with Real Photos. Since you have a collection that’s come from your own family, you must have an appreciation for them on more than just the view side. Of course, sometimes there’s no message isn’t there?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Marie really does know how to put good friends together, doesn’t she?
