Love That Coffee
Actually, I hate coffee. There's just something about it that always tastes bitter in my mouth. I do, however, love this postcard. These kind of strange buildings, designed to look like some object, used to be a fairly common sight along American roadways, but as time passes, so do the coffee pots, giant shoes, and plaster pets. I miss them, kitschy though they may be.
This card was never used, so no messages or postmarks. The caption, "Washington Island Information Booth. This hand-painted, Norwegian Rosemaling coffee pot portrays the Old World hospitality of Washington Island. Charming natives, dressed in Scandinavian attire, dispense information and coffee to visitors of Washington Island, Door County, Wisc. Color by Hagedorn Studio."
