Festival of Postcards Mammoth Hot Springs

This is a postcard my dad received in 1921. It does not say who sent it. The White part of Mammoth Hot Springs is from the calcium carbonate in the hot water that flows over Mammoth Hot Springs daily.

Postcard was mailed at Yellowstone post office June 27, 1921. Too bad it was not signed. It may be from Duane & Carrie Taylor, my dad's older sister and brother in law. They got married a week before this and were honeymooning in Yellowstone after the marriage.

  2. Good evening Charles,
    This is just a little note to let you know that the "Festival of Postcards (6th Ed.)White" was published yesterday afternoon and you can take a look at it here:
    Your postcard is part of a cluster of 'water-related' cards in the section 'Postcards in the past tense' - although I think yours is the only one with hot water!
    Evelyn in Montreal

    Note: I hope you will consider copying the Festival Link into the body of your post so that readers can more easily move between the entries.

  3. Thanks Evelyn I did post the link. Some real great postcards in this Festival.
