The description states:


“Breathtakingly Blue” well describes this jewel of Lake Tahoe. In its pine-fringed setting. Emerald Bay on the southern shores of Lake Tahoe is a popular vacationland. The Nevada shores and mountains rise in the distance.

–Lake Tahoe lies at the bottom of a mountain-ringed basin, and the mountains behind the photographer in this view are the much taller Sierra Nevada range.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
