vintage x 2

Another 'Italian ice' fountain but this one is in Grand Circus Park (!) in Detroit, Michigan. The card was sent in 1942 by a man traveling with his wife from Wyandotte, Michigan, to Bremen, Indiana. The message suggests that they were on something of a job search.

The stamp on the card above reflects a wartime ethos.
