Vintage & Collectible California Postcards:

The Hotel Del Coronado

Coronado, California

Date Unknown

This scene makes me want to pack up the car and head for the beach!

 The card was never used and has no postmark to date it, but it was published by the Western Publishing & Novelty Company of Los Angeles. It has a divided back and a spot for a one cent stamp. Though it's hard to read in this image, the number next to the caption on the top is 4432, and the notation at the lower right reads, "6A-H50"

Today, the Hotel Del Coronado is now a National historic Landmark and has recently undergone a $55 million restoration

If you want to window shop for your next vacation, or just admire the views and dream, visit their website and take the Photo Tour...  Wow! 

It's really spectacular! tell them you heard about them here, and that they ought to advertise with! ;-)
