This lovely vintage postcard has both the AAA and American Express logos. It was mailed using a grey five cent Washington stamp from Miami February 13, 1963 to Mrs. Eva M. Harner, Littletown [unintelligible] R.D.E. It reads:

Feb. 12
Staying here tonight had to stop driving today we got into an awful storm, going to Sarasota tomorrow.
