It's Paradise in Wyoming


If you were ever there maybe you can tell us if it's true ... Paradise Dude Ranch, Buffalo, Wyoming. We like the gate with FUN welcome. We're going to guess the photographer was riding the saddled up horse with no rider waiting by the fence.

This was an unused card, one that card collectors call a "real photo" postcard.  It appears that the photographer might have used a rubber stamp that labeled it PHOTO POST CARD, provided a place for ADDRESS, and advertised they were using Kodak Paper as a frame for the stamp spot ... here's the back ...


The question we can't answer very well ... How old is this postcard?  Perhaps we should ask the folks who are still running the Ranch. You can view their website here. They claim to have been in business for over 100 years and now go by the name Paradise Guest Ranch. We're going to guess the card is from the 1950s ... what do you think?

Linking up today with ... Good Fences

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  1. The 1950s sounds reasonable to me, John. No place would be called a Dude Ranch these days, but I kind of like the idea of being a "dude." :-)

  2. I think you could be spot on with the 50's or even earlier perhaps.

  3. Kind of looks like the 50s, and what a great place to be available for ranch adventures all these years.

    Hard to tell how old the photograph is ... at least the 50s I would think.
