“You’ll be the Royalty at the SANDCASTLE”

This lovely vintage postcard was mailed from Sarasota March 18, 1956 using a red 2 cent Jefferson stamp. It was mailed to Dr. James C Fox Jr, 85 Jefferson St, Hartford Conn. It reads:

We’ve has a pleasant visit here and are now beginning to think of going home
Our best regards to you
Juliette & Herm[unintelligible] Rome

Holy cats you guys, I love this card. The palm trees. The decorative balconies. The staged guests in the chairs. The guy standing in the khakis and white shirt. The billowy clouds in the background. It is glorious and I wish I was there. No wonder Juliette and Herm had a pleasant visit. But I’d never want to go back home.

Dr. James C Fox Jr was born September 20, 1895. He attended Johns Hopkins medical school and married Alice Fox. He passed away November 23, 1980 at age 85. From the August 13, 1948 Hartford Courant:
