This lovely vintage postcard was mailed using a 2 cent red John Adams stamp March 1, 1955 from Fort Myers. It was sent to Mr. & Mrs. Preston Wills, 1300 N. Harrison St, Apt B 100, Wilmington, Delaware. It reads:

Hi! Naples is a pretty nice place, I wonder if you know it. We had lunch about 10 days ago with the Bancrofts at Palm Beach. Every minute of our trip is wonderful, but home sounds good, too. Hope to be there April 1st. Love, All.

This is actually the second card I have from the Beachcomber. See the first one, a lovely night scene, here.
