This lovely vintage card has the Diner’s Club logo and another logo that looks like a shield with a Greek in it. I can’t make out the writing. No idea what the ATA or CTC means, either. This card is unused.
There are older cards from the Southwind available online, listing eight units under the ownership of Creston & Orpha Six. This is the second card I have of the Southwind; a slightly older version with the older phone exchange can be seen here. The older card also boasts two more rooms.
I love this place and though I can’t seem to find it, I hope it is still standing today.
