This lovely card is unsent and I have no real idea on the date. It appears the beautiful sky was separate and added to the back of the cut-out motel and trees into a single image.
I, for one, would love to be a member of the Beachcomber Club. When I was quite young, the next-door neighbors and I had a Cat Club, and Tony painted up a special logo rock for us that was red and blue epoxy paint, with simply the word “Meow” on it. Now, we didn’t have a cat between the two households. But the ladies down the street all had cats and we sometimes cat-sat when they went on vacation. But a club where you simply strolled the beach, looking for…I don’t know. What do you comb a beach looking for? Shells? Sounds like my sort of activity.
Here’s another postcard view of it. Unfortunately, it no longer seems to exist.
