Swampy’s #Florida Postcards: Bok Tower and a Bus! 1942.
An oddity of a postcard of Bok Gardens in Lake Wales. Anyone who knows Bok Tower knows there is no road in front of the pond by the tower. To properly place a bus in front of the tower it was disproportionally sized to fit the postcard image area. Terrific job of splicing it all together, despite the surrealistic result.
The postcard was mailed January 6th, 1942 from Zephyrhills from Mattie Loomis to Mrs. Bates in Beloit, Wisconsin. Matte apologizes to “Dear friend” for not getting “at in time” to mail Christmas cards. She comments that she has experienced “The first cold spell we have had so far, yet no frost.”
