Dick to Crystal: 13 August 1941 (postcard #1)

[Postcard picturing Mendenhall Glacier and wildflowers near Juneau, Alaska. Postmarked on 13 August 1941 at 5 p.m. at Wrangell, Alaska. Addressed to Miss Crystal K, Berwyn, Ilinois, U.S.A.]

Hi Kiddle,

                This is another Glacier we visited during our sightseeing tour around Juneau.  While on our way to it we saw hundreds of salmon fighting their way up stream from the ocean to spawn.

Thinking of you,

Dick to Crystal: 13 August 1941 (postcard #1)

The blurb on the back of the postcard reads:

Summertime in Alaska presents the elements to a true paradox – here nature has combined glaciers and snow capped mountains, flowers and ever-shining sun.  The pleasantly cool climate and colorful fusion of wild flowers are another reason for the popularity of Alaska vacations.
