You know I love these! Historical treasures. And I'm always impressed how little things have changed over the years!

I love it! I used to enjoy sending and receiving postcards. I guess Facebook has replaced that.

Isn't it sad that most people no longer send postcards? I really like these!

J'adore these vintage postcards VP, look forward to seeing them.

Hi VP! Re your question on Ocala: Cedar Key is a small island. People come from miles around on the weekends to go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. They may live 50-100 miles away, but put their boat on a trailer and haul it out to Cedar Key. In fact, what you see in the photo is just a portion of all the boat trailers on the island that day.

I have to agree with Lowell. More cars, less sailing boats but on the whole...

It's always fun to see one of your postcards with the written message (even if I can't read it).
