Old Post Cards

This past weekend, I came acorss a few old postcards for sale at Magpie Antiques & Collectibles.

They don’t follow any particular theme, but they were just something I thought I would share. Both cards date to the mid 1960’s.

The card of the Casa-Don is postmarked 1967, but is obviously older, as judged by the striketrhoughs on the back.

What year did they drop the exchange letters from use in phone numbers?
