Dear Mother,

Here’s a picture of our cabin camp. It really is quite nice. Air-conditioned too. How are you now? Hope you’re much better. Delores hasn’t been at all well lately–I think it’s intestinal flu. Will write much more later.

Love Carroll

I marked our cabin.

  1. What a cool postcard. I love the sign!


  2. Cabin camp! The phrase brings to mind the short film “Camps of Crime” from the 1930s. This looks a bit more established than many of its kind.
