Postcard: Giant Casket in Crystal Caverns

April 5th, 2010 · No Comments

Giant casket in Crystal Caverns, Virginia

Card is titled: “Giant Casket in Crystal Caverns, Strasburg, VA.”

Printed description on back of card:

GIANT CASKET IN CRYSTAL CAVERNS
Strasburg, Va.

Weight probably fifty tons.  This huge rock is supposed to have dropped from a crevice overhead, caused by an earthquake ages ago.  The lid is entirely separate from the casket, and has the appearance of having been placed there, as the different sections are clearly shown.

Postcard is addressed to Mrs. Emil Blomquist, Jeanerette, La.  Postmarked in Strasburg, VA, on 4 August 1935, at 4 PM.

Written text on back of card:

I find that Mary Davidson has married & lives in town.  I had a good rest here & perhaps I go to Front Royal tonight.  Love, B.T.
