WASHINGTON DUKE HOTEL Durham North Carolinia 1949

I love postcards of old hotels. They stood high in the sky and seemed so elegant.
This postcard is of the Washington Duke Hotel in Durham, North Carolina.
Note the great vintage automobiles in front of the hotel.
The back of the postcard is 1949 and is addressed to the Foster family of Newton Kansas from A.J. and Opal.
Hello folks,
the weather here has been so warm
we don't even have any heat.
have had lots of rain.
Guess we will be leaving soon
We are going back through Texas.

To see another post card from North Carolina go here or other postcards that once belonged to the Foster family. Sadly they got separated from the family members.
Thanks for stopping by to view my hotel post card from North Carolina

The Old Dowlin Mill New Mexico

Traveling the United States through vintage postcards is always fun. We are in New Mexico today.
The Old Dowlin Mill
At Ruidosa, New Mexico, is about
100 years old. The 20 ft high
wheel is still turned by water
during the summer months and and
corn and wheat are ground on flint stones
inside the building. " Billy the kid"
and General Pershing were some of its more
colorful visitors.
Postmarked 1952
addressed to the Foster family of Newton Kansas
