1963 Postcard of Logan Pass

This beautiful postcard came from the Eight Flags Antique Market.  I love mountain scenery! This is a shot of Logan Pass, a part of Glacier National Park in Montana.  Here I thought Logan Pass was in Utah.  What do I know.

Did you ever wonder who the people are in postcards and vacation brochures? Do they know they are being photographed?  Were they told that their likeness was going to be passed around?  I have always been curious about that.

The postmark is from East Glacier Park, Mont. and dated Aug 10 11 AM 1963.
It's addressed to Mrs. Ruth Lundin, 4207 S Dale Mabry, Tampa, Florida.

Bonnie & Leo, Jim & Betsy
& I drove to Yellowstone
Park yesterday & then here
we woke up to this view.
We drove from 6:30 a.m.
to 11 p.m. It was 92°  at 
3 P.M. and we had to put 
our sweaters on by 7 P.M.
Wonderful weather here.
     Love E. Win   Box B8. 

I haven't been able to glean much information about Ruth, but I did find her death record.
