Vintage 1912 Postcard Huckabay Public School

Great old vintage postcard of the Huckbay Public School dated February 22, 1912. Is unused and marked maker as L. C. Doolittle, Maker , Esterville , Iowa.
I bought this here in Texas. I did a search on google and found this article This is probably the school in this picture.
This is a great piece of vintage history for anyone interested in old buildings or schools. Would be wonderful in a genealogy family notebook for someone who had family that went there.

Elephant Butte Lake, Near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico 1954

I am continuing in New Mexico with my vintage postcards. Here is the other vintage postcard I have of Elephant Butte Lake, Near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Isn't the coloring beautiful.
Elephant Butte Dam on the Rio Grande derives its name from the likeness of the " Butte " or hill to an Elephant. it is but a short drive from the famous Hot Springs to the Dam which creates a lake 40 miles in length, stocked with many varieties of game fish and is well known as a fisherman's paradise. The curative waters of the Hot Springs near by , excellent fishing and mild winters make a year round resort for the 60,000 or more tourists who visit here annually. The Regatta each spring is a special attraction.
Post marked May 10th 1954 and addressed to the Fosters of Kansas.
Dear Bernice and Tex
We are getting lots of rest taking mineral baths treatment from Magnolia Ellis. Should be as good as new after all this. We enjoy going out to the dam, beautiful out there. Be home Friday Love Clara 7 Brad
