From our old postcard collection we are going back to 1954 to have "Fun all the time" at the Paradise Ranch in Buffalo, Wyoming ...
|Postmark is strong but writing has faded so much|
we can't read all of it.
|A good fence and some nice looking horses.|
These are called "real photo" postcards
|This one was not used.|
Paradise Ranch is still in operation ... check out their website here.
Linking up today with Good Fences ... thank you Tex!
Does the thought of a vacation at a guest ranch in the USA Rocky Mountains sound interesting to you?
Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
I like this photo postcard.. The ranch looks like a great place for a vacation..Have a happy day!ReplyDelete
That looks like a wonderful ranch. I'm amazed it is still in operation and will definitely check it out! Have a great day.ReplyDelete
how neat, love these old postcards!ReplyDelete
What interesting time witnesses. I find such old postcards really great.ReplyDelete
I come visiting you from Good Fences.
♥ly greetings from germany
Their new marketing is a little more dynamic, ain't it. My wife and I say often that we're moving to Wyoming when it is 95 degrees and 95 percent humidity here in Tampa.ReplyDelete
Sign me up, John....I'm ready to go! But wait until summer.ReplyDelete
Great old postcards. Love finding them and the history they bring. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Visiting from Good Fences.
I like the idea of fun all the time. ;))ReplyDelete
No, John, I can't say this is something I would look forward to. Dude ranches don't appeal. Then again, there aren't any old women in the pictures, either! :-)ReplyDelete
how cute. perfect dude ranch advertisement!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful! Great Good Fences post.ReplyDelete
I think my parents took me camping in theReplyDelete
Big Horns near there about that time...:)
What fun cards!ReplyDelete
I loved seeing these...wish I could read the writing on the back of the one.ReplyDelete
Take me back to the days my daddy visited his own cowboy father! Fun to relate these photos to his old album!ReplyDelete
They sure had a lot of horses!ReplyDelete
The horses and the fence are beautiful. It looks like they sure do have a good time at the ranch,ReplyDelete
What a "blast from the past" with these old postcards. The Ranch looks like a cool place and how neat that it is still in operation.ReplyDelete
What great older postcards! Glad they are still in operation.ReplyDelete
I love looking at old postcards and these fit well into to today's meme.ReplyDelete
1954! I wasn't even born yet. Love it!ReplyDelete
Oh this is real treat. For us today. Whoooo Hoot HOWDYReplyDelete
Cow-gals and cowgirls and Good fences Thursday.
I enjoyed the photos from the postcard and am reminded of so many old Western shows and movies! Looks like a perfect place to see Roy Rogers and Dale!ReplyDelete
One of my uncles worked at a dude ranch--probably in the 50s, though I'm not sure when. The ranch work did him good, and he ended up as a sheriff and then judge before retiring. I'd enjoy giving ranching a try for a while just to see what it's like.
As usual, a very neat find! Thanks for sharing it with us!
They must be doing something right to still be in business after all these years. : ) To be honest, it is not my kind of vacation.ReplyDelete
Love this, John....how fun.ReplyDelete
When our son was little, we had friends that had a dude ranch in Colorado and we went there several times. My hubby loved every minute of it...I was always ready to get back home...scared of horses and bears...just a general cry baby. lol
Now those are some real fences!ReplyDelete
These are fantastic fences, John!ReplyDelete
