Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Smoky Mountains Park promotional cards

poortastecards
Both of these cards are stamped on the back: “AUG 28 1941”.  They’re, um, promotional cards for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, printed by Curteich in Chicago under the auspices of Harry N. Martin, P.O. Box 324, Asheville, N.C.
They were probably considered corny at the time and have gotten less tasteful as time as gone on.  But, remember, the country was still in the last panting days of the Great Depression then.  The attack on Pearl Harbor was just four months in the future.
