    All of these are astounding. Postcards from Florida are the absolute best, especially from the 1950’s. It was a state built around recreational activities so the postcards are always amazingly colorful and spirited.

    My favorite is the very first one. Normally I don’t go for bathing beauty stuff but that’s a hat that she has wrapped around her.

    An excellent array of early 60s bathing suits on the second card. I wonder how they chose which girl got to be the mermaid?

    The Esther Williams and Tony Martin card is beautiful.

    I love that the Colorful Macaws gal looks like she’s wearing a fringed shawl with all those long tailed birds.

    Would love to see more of your postcard collection!
