Here’s a postcard of the old Caspar’s Gator Jungle. I wish this postcard had two things: 1) a postmark 2) an address. I’ve seen much about Caspar’s over the years. I know I’ve read about it, but the memory is failing here. My books about St. Augustine only focus on the ancient side of the area. I guess a Swampy’s Florida edition is due to cover the ancient and not so ancient areas of St. Augustine.

Please feel free to fill in my memory gaps.

Click here to see this 1952 advertisement I found through Google of Caspar’s Gator Jungle handbags ad from the music magazine, Billboard. The ad is on the right handside of the page at the top. Look at the DETAIL of the handbag. 🙂
