Travel near or travel far -- You'll find no prettier Dining Car ...
When you collect old postcards you may find one, like this card, that leaves you wondering ... To us, it looks like a possible newer "reprint" of a vintage card. Reasons we are skeptical ... The back of the card is printed a bit haphazardly ... not squared up with the paper ... The italic font in the description does not seem like one commonly seen during the time corresponding to the image -- 1910 to about mid 1920s ... and the printer carelessly left a "paragraph" marker before the last sentence of the description. As with any collectible item, people will try to copy it and sell it as if though it was authentic. Buyer beware, as they say.
If authentic, this card would have been published by the Northern Pacific Railroad. They were, indeed, well known for their dining car accomodations. We have seen the image in the Railroad's other publications, such as advertising brochures.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
