Now that sounds like a tricky title. Sounds as if Landis Cafe and Filling Station is for sale. And I AM a real estate agent looking for things to sell. But that is not what I meant.
I meant that I have found a great old post card showing the old Landis Motel Cafe and Station at Highways 64 and 67 in Judsonia, Arkansas. Their slogan was "We Doze but Never Close." Air-conditioned rooms, new and modern. Here is the way it looked in 1958.
It looks so clean and neat, doesn't it? But what is interesting and surprising is the message on the back of the card. I had to think about it for some time. It said, "The total price is for show case $19,949. Reva Crawford, Andrews.2.c." And it was mailed to 1958 Show Case, The price is Right, P. O. Box 1958, New York 46, N. Y.
Then it hit me! This card was mailed to The Price is Right in 1958 with hopes of winning a huge amount of items in the showcase. The Price is Right is still around, isn't it?? There must be a huge number of cards that got mailed when the show was asking for postcard entries. I guess now it would be a text message that they'd want. How the world has changed...........
Here's the back of the card.
What's that? What does it look like now? I thought you'd never ask. Here it is now.
