Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Mountain Motel, Boone NC



This black-and-white postcard is from the 40s, after the war.  A later image of this business shows all buildings with sloping roofs.

Cullom & Chertner was a publishing firm in Nashville.  Apparently, after the war, they kept a sales office in Atlanta.

Water damage.  Otherwise in fair condition.


Another view.  This is a real photo post card (RPPC) from the 1950s.  It is postally unused, but a child has scrawled in pencil on the back.

    I have enjoyed your post cards, etc. Love the old places, sorry to see the ruin. I am almost certain I have one of your drawings “Owl puts on the dog” 11/76. Framed by
    Paint Service Center 405 East Market St. Kingsport. Inscription on reverse:
    Sharon, I always was forgetful-Happy Birthday and Merry this and joyous that and thanks for making it a lot easier to bear all the squirrels down at the zoo.


    Is certainly a favorite drawing of mine!! Purchased in Clarksville Tn, during 127 yard sale at a little shop.

    Just wanted you to know it has a good home in Macon Ga.

    • Gosh, I don’t even remember that drawing! However, I’m really glad you like it and that it has a home in Macon. Sharon was a co-worker at the radio station I worked at. Thank you for your comment!
