This Day in Postcard History (February 13, 1957)

With the East Coast locked in yet again in a death grip with the Polar Vortex, close your eyes and imagine yourself bathing in sun beams and warm breezes while luxuriating on piles of juicy Florida grapefruit, as Connie Curtis in Brasher Falls, NY must have done 59 years ago today. 

For the record, the noon-time temp in Brasher Falls today was -11 deg. F.

Stay warm out there!
