Vintage postcard California Knotts Berry Farm 1950s. Color photograph postcard depicting a scene of Mourner's a Boot's Hill at the ghost town of Knott's Berry Farm in California. The card was sent from Pasadena in 1958.
The scene on the front shows actresses in Historical garb, one holding a bouquet of dahlia's and weeping at the grave marked:
"Here rest Clubfoot George hung by mistake July 23, 1849"
The back of the card reads: "Mourners at Boot Hill, Ghost Town's cemetery, where the desperate, the unfortunate and the law-abiding rest together in peace. Color Photo By Hubert Lowman"
The card was published by Knott's Berry Farm Amusement Park.
This card is used and still retains its original postmarked 2 Cent Thomas Jefferson stamp and postmark from June 25, 1958 at 6 PM in Pasadena California.
The card was sent to Mrs. Helen Porter of Hebron, Conneticut, from her daughter "Lu"
It is an odd choice of card considering her correspondence regards her current situation since her families move to Pasadena. She states: "What a mess things are in ... we have to sleep on the divan."
Condition: Near mint except for a tiny bit of wear on the corners and edges.
(those wavy lines in the photo are from the scan)
The card is 5.5" x 3.5" or 14 cm x 8.9 cm
This item will be kept safe in a sealed archival sleeve, shipped inside a flat, unbendable mailer
