I just received my vintage postcard from the guy that hates plastic. It's pretty cool and it got me thinking we should have a thread devoted to vintage Yosemite Postards.

Here is what non-polymer dude sent me

Cool thread, and Nita that card is the best. A perfect snapshot, both in style and in those elevations given for HD and ND. Ha - the old days!

I hope the pause is cause everyone is running to the scanners. Since I have very little chance of winning a i abhor plastic postcard, this thread is the only way I am going to see any of these.

Thanks to all who have posted, those are some great cards.

Aloha,

I tell ya. . . there would be some BIG money in putting out a line of retro cards like this . . I just LOVE them! The tackier the better. Post-a-cards (as my sainted Gran used to call them) these days are WAY too plastic. They need to be fun and colorful like these. Especially with only 2 cars in the lot at Tunnel View!

:-)

YAY!
