I found the following commentary that accompanied this post card on a blog I ran across while surfing….I love the graphics here!!
“THE SPACE NEEDLE is the most dominating feature in the skyline of Seattle. It rises to the height of 600 feet and is topped by a restaurant which revolves 360 degrees every hour. About 260 persons can be served. An observation deck and snack service is also atop the Needle for those wish to feat mostly on the tremendous scenic panorama. This structure represents a private investment on nearly $4,000,000.
Mailed from Space Needle, Washington to Rocheport, Missouri on September 25, 1962.”
