This vintage postcard really is fun and special because it's a valuable piece of my family history. It was sent to my mom and her brothers by their parents (my grandparents) in July of 1955. My grandparents had taken a trip to visit family in Mexico and sent this postcard to their children during their trip. I've blurred the names of my mom and her brothers for privacy reasons.
Written message from my grandparents.
July 9, 1955
We drove all night and everything is fine. It is now 7 A.M. and we stoped [sic] at a cafe at Gila Bend. It is desert here and it is about 100 miles from Tucson Arizona. We are having a wonderful time. Be always good kids.

The postcard was published by Bob Petley, Phoenix, Arizona.

PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS
This common desert cactus, one of the first to bloom each spring, has blossoms ranging from very light yellow to deep red. They hold their blossoms longer than any other of the desert flora.
