Postcard from a homesick Goldendaler

Here we have a note home from Harold and Mabel...enjoying The Jewel of America's Finest City, but ready to head north to where their hearts are. TSG found this item quite intriguing because it was sent from our hometown (in 1958, no less!) As a matter of fact, the La Jolla Palms Hotel (now sporting the Holiday Inn Express label) is located a scant .9 miles from where TSG "popped out", as it were. Imagine our delight when we encountered this postal artifact in the gift shoppe of the Presby Mansion Museum!

Who knows whatever became of Harold, Mabel, or Roy--but TSG thanks them for the pleasure of a "small world" moment during the summer of aught nine.
