This lovely vintage postcard has the AAA logo and a logo for Lee Hotels. It was mailed from Los Angeles October 3, 1966 using a purple four cent Lincoln stamp (S36- Scott #1036A) to Mrs. Alfred Lewis, 2611 90th St. Sturtevant Wis. It reads:

Arrived in LA safe and sound (3pm Monday). Trip was nice but didn’t see much but desert. Few Mts. were beautiful. We’ll try a different way back. Los Angeles is all freeways it seems. A big, big town. Had no trouble finding the airport or motel. Our place is right close by. Car will be parked for us inside. Love Dorothy & Phil.

This is a gorgeous card. Two bathing beauties, and two slicks in suits. Also some random woman, fully clothed, on a beach chair. The colors are just lovely, though. I love this card.

Joy of joys, the building still stands and is now a Super 8 (Google Street View):
