This lovely vintage postcard was mailed May 11, 1967 using a grey four-cent Lincoln log cabin stamp to Mr. & Mrs. D Gordman, 618 W. 3rd St, Chester, Pa 19013. It reads:
We are here at this motel until Sat. then we expect to leave on Sund for St Petes. We are right on the Beach. Frank is golfing with Fred today and Frid. Love M & F
Notice the pylon sign has a clock at the top of it. Perhaps so you know how long you’ve been sunning your flesh?
Owners Dick and Don owned other Clearwater properties, including the Riviera, here.
Here’s another awesome postcard from the Glass House. This one lists James A. Novotny and Miles J. Novotny as the owners, and a date of 1961.
The Glass House now appears to be a parking lot and small park.
