This image shows a typical portion of the Clifton’s Brookdale cafeteria, with both painted and fake trees, as well as the stone terraces that provided access to other dining areas and a place for flowering plants.
The description on this card is the same poem as listed on the previous day’s posting:
Within these doors, a forest calls to you —
A mountain land of redwood tress and sky —
Offering woodland peace and beauty to
The tired heart, the city-weary eye.
So enter, friend, to walk where brooklets run
Down rocky crevices, through fern and reed.
Dine here and rest; and when your meal is done,
May something more than food have met your need.
Esther Baldwin York
–The turreted tower with the cross on it is the Little Chapel, and is featured in the next postcard.
This image likely dates from the 1950s.
