The description states:

MONTICELLO

THE HOME OF THOMAS JEFFERSON

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA

Jefferson’s bedroom showing his alcove bed and chaise lounge.

–Currently the bed is still on display, but the chaise has been replaced with another contemporary chair. While it is not immediately obvious, the bed sits in the middle of the room, with access from both sides, as can be seen in this view.

This postcard likely dates from the 1950s.
