Dear Venice, Wish You Were Here #19

This image seemed to be a very popular postcard. I have a few of them. But this one has a message that is quite sweet. Sissy is writing to her brother Wes. Don’t you love her drawings? The vase on the gondola and the reclining person–the best!

Can anyone make out the date? This card is certainly not as old as some of the others in my collection.

When I looked up Wesley Clark’s address, Google Maps shows me an orchard! Taking the aerial view, here’s what the location looks like: a farmhouse! That’s a really different world than Venice!

    I can’t help with the date, Kathleen. Perhaps a postage expert could tell you when it cost 115 lire to send a postcard from Italy to the USA. Do you think she wrote that card while in a gondola? I think so, as she wrote ‘this one, too’.

  2. I would say late 1960’s – early 1970’s.
