This lovely vintage card is postally unused. My sister Kirsten sent me this card. The internet notes the Georgian was built 1955-58 and was converted to apartments in 1970. It is 22 stories tall. This Flikr image has some history with it. I’d like someone to explain to me why we can’t have wonderfully colored cars any more. This parking lot is just bursting with turquoise, pink, yellow and green automobiles. Everything today is so drab.

Here it is today, courtesy Google Street View:
