Sadly, you just don’t see many tall-tale postcards any more. I love them, but they seemed to have reached their peak in the 1950 and 1960s – such as this treasure from 1968.
It’s from my aunt to my grandparents from Sheguiandah, Ontario. I’d never heard of Sheguiandah (it’s the only postcard I have from there). It’s on Manitoulin Isand in Lake Huron. The tourist website states it is one of the best fishing places – judging from this big fish, I’m not surprised.
Here’s the backside:
“Hi. This is the fist X caught here. We are staying at a real nice camp just outside Little current, it is called Green Acres. We have showers and hot water – ever nice. Everything but the telepone up on the pole. There is a nice beach here too. The people are really friendly, the rest of the campers are mostly from the States. Well bye for now.”
By the way, 47 years later and Green Acres campground is still in business.
