"The Golden West" The California Coast

The Golden West, The California Coast Pg. 1

The Golden West, The California Coast Pg. 2

Isn't this a beautiful postcard? It depicts a gorgeous sunset somewhere along the Southern California coast. This vintage linen postcard was manufactured by Longshaw Card Co., Los Angeles, California.

When my grandparents and their family emigrated from Brazil to the United States in 1952, they settled in sunny Southern California. I wonder if they bought this postcard not too long after they arrived.

Typed description from back of postcard:
Nowhere in the world will more spectacular sunsets be seen than on the southern coast of California. The vivid hues and the changing colors make the "Golden West" truly named.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. "Golden West" is a perfect descriptor. It is indeed a lovely card. I like how the trees and plants are just silhouettes against the sunset.

    1. It really is a perfect title for this postcard. Thanks for stopping by Wendy!

  2. I grew up in Southern California and loved the climate. Not sure I saw too many sunsets like this. A very nice postcard

    1. Yes, perhaps this was an idealized picture of a Southern California coastal sunset. Thanks for stopping by!
