Postcard: Mark Twain — Rivers of America

2014_0222_postcard_16a

Dear Tinky —

This park is really great — done with such finesse and perfection it’s unbelievable — weather is warm + sunny — food is very Mexican — buildings are attractive but won’t last long — no scenery here at all — going to L.A. Tuesday, so may get to see some water and mountains. All are well + tired! Love Jan

A few notes:

A) Complains that Disneyland has no scenery and hopes to see water and mountains in Los Angeles.

B) Writes this on a postcard with a photo of water and a mountain at Disneyland.

C) Thinks that Disneyland buildings won’t last, but 37 years after the postcard was written, most of the buildings are still there, but the mountain in the picture is gone.
