Nov 19th (1957)  Dear Dad,

Silver Moon Motel

(State Hwy. 39)
Anaheim, California
Phone: JAckson 7-1102
Jack J. Tilley, Owner

Anaheim's most recommended family motel.  With 44 modern units.  Where commercial rates prevail year around.  Kitchens, Television, and Radios.

Hi -- guess who stayed here on your recommendation -- nice place.  Wayne loves the pool.

Since Sat. afternoon have seen Knott's and -- oy, my poor feet!  Going to go to Marine land today - gerri, art, Milana, & Wayne.

Casino and Tennis Court, Greenbrier Hotel, White Sulpher Springs, W. Va. (2000 Ft. Elevation)

This one is framed, but if I recall correctly the caption says something to the effect that this woman is a professional wildlife scientist, and you really shouldn't feed bears like this yourself.

In case you're wondering, 212 S. Beach Blvd. still seems to be a motel:

...and the Greenbrier Hotel is not only a going concern, but a vast cluster of buildings that looks like the presidential palace of a nineteenth century empire plopped down in the West Virginia hills.


If you would like to receive "Casino and Tennis Court, Greenbrier Hotel," complete with cheerful message and anachronistic postage, send your name and mailing address to our new email address, InfiniteArtTournament@[The popular email service that rhymes with "female"].  [Claimed] Yes, I know I owe some of you postcards.
