Aside from the interesting choice of capitalization, the “selling points” they chose seem a bit questionable to me. Calling out fireproofing and soundproofing…perhaps it’s a really high crime area around the motel. TV in some rooms. Huh.

This vintage postcard was mailed using a purple four cent Lincoln stamp, postmarked Midway GA April 14, 1967. It was mailed to Mrs. Mary Robbins, 231 Washington Street, Riverside, New Jersey, Burlington County. You know they say that some new should be delivered in person? Not Marion and Al. They send their news via postcard:

Dad passed away Wed April 5th – ill with 3 nurses daily for 31 days – I will write details when I get home – 6 [unintelligible] way Louie – Will be up later Love Marion & Al.

Anyhow, it looks like the Midway is still in business:
