The description states:


Nothing is prettier to the visitor to florida, than the golden orange groves around the blue water of spring-fed lakes, for the citrus growing areas stretch formless through the hill and lake section of Florida.

The description states:


A highlight of the rugged wave-swept coastline at Lobos State Park, south of Carmel, California.

–Both card were produced by the came company, and have the same omission “Lobos State Park” instead of the correct “Point Lobos State Park”. This image appears to be taken during late morning or mid-day, as the shadows are smaller and the color contrast diminished. Still, the exceptional blue color of the sea is still obvious.

This card was used and is dated 20 June 1979.
