Postcard Friendship Friday


Bathing in the Gulf of Mexico at Galveston, about 1908.
Other postcards of the same image were found that say --
Bathing in the Gulf of Mexico at Corpus Christi!
Guess it doesn't matter what city the bathers were in long as they were in
the Gulf of Mexico.

(This is one of 32 cards published in An Album of Old-Time Postcards From Houston and Galveston.)

Great postcard!

I guess I jumped the gun in posting mine. I visited the website last night, and again this morning, and there isn't any post for this week yet.

Thank you for asking about Turbo. :-) I should probably post an update.

He was doing pretty well the first couple of days home, now he's got a cold. Dh is picking up antibiotics this morning. Tbo is being pretty fussy, only eating a few crunchies here and there, and he's sick to death of wet food (it used to be a treat but he's been bombarded with it over the past two weeks). Dh hand fed him last night before bed time (just by putting it on his finger), and this morning Tbo ate some tuna. He's out of sorts from being locked inside at night. Yesterday I let him out with the cat flap open and he spent most of the day inside anyway.

We're still not 100%, but hopefully we will be soon.

Hi Snap!

This postcard is so great! Makes me smile and feel like I'm in the water with everyone!

Nice to hear you are a fellow baseball lover!

Has fashion ever changed! It was so risque to show any part of the body back then. It looks so refreshing to be out there swimming!

Swim suits sure have changed over the years, haven't they! Great old postcard.

A fascinating card. I'm so glad you have a date for it because just a few days ago I posted one showing bathers in Italy. I was trying to date the costumes but they would be older than yours - long sleeves and frilly hats!

Happy PFF!

Happy PFF! That is a cool postcard! I have one to show, but I am waiting until Marie is feeling better and posting a current so I can link it. I guess I will be posting something else this weekend! :)

I love Vintage post cards and letters. This looks like such a fun group of blogging friends.

I took a look at a few of your other PFF posts and love them! There just is something about old postcards... :)
