Printed on back of postcard:


Coronado, California
The Del Coronado is one of the few old-time famous and fashionable resort hotels in the country.  Located on a oeninsula in San Diego Bay.

Card was postmarked in San Diego, Calif, on 16 May 1958 at 6 p.m.  It is addressed to Mrs. Alice Ekelman, c/o Southeast Machinery Company, 1525 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  A two-cent U.S. postage stamp is affixed.  Text of the written message on back of postcard reads:

Well – we made it.  3250 miles of driving in 8 days & saw New Orleans (French Quarter), Grand Canyon & of course all kinds of mountain-desert-beach etc. scenery along the way.  Took southern route to escape flood area.  Wonderful trip.

Love, Hattie
