Carmel, California and Environs

Today’s folio highlights the small town of Carmel, California and covers areas both north and south of the village. The town is quite small and among other notable features has no house numbers in the central village, so all mail is still held at the post office for pickup by residents.

 The folio is unused and undated, but the styles of clothing and postal address indicate it is from the 1950s.

Green Mountains, Vermont Folio

The folio this time is of the Green Mountain area of Vermont, the small state in the northeast of the United States. While it is a neighbor to the original colonies that declared independence, Vermont is not among the original 13 which established the United States.

The Green Mountains are called the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and extend the length of the state from north to south.

This folio was printed just before the United States joined the Second World War, and one copy in the collection was used and mailed to a soldier stationed at the POW camp in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The copyright date on the cover of the folio is 1941, and the used folio was mailed in 1943.

Watkins Glen State Park, New York

The images  of Watkins Glen continue with this folio of views from the park and surrounding areas. These images have some unexpected repetitions, but also show some of the surrounding area near the park.

The park preserves a deep canyon cut by Glen Creek, which empties into nearby Seneca Lake. It is located in the western end of New York state in the area known as the Finger Lakes region, due to the several very long, narrow and deep lakes all arrayed side by side.

This folio is dated on the front and is from 1957.
