Heebee Post #830 - Stan Askew - Pasadena, CA - USA

 Stan is a long time, popular mail artist and the excellent composition you see above is a prime example of his distinguished work. This postcard seems to have captured a sense of fear within the tangle of bramble, as if peering too deeply into, there may be no returning from the sinister growth. Fantastic card Stan - among my top favorites from you.
 Side B of the card consists of some interesting imagery - The officer and his consort, both wanting to get rid of an issue between themselves and get back together. Or perhaps I am putting too much into this. The card does have an interesting appeal to it.
 These two fabulous vintage postcards show off a pleasurable lifestyle had by the affluent in beautiful desert surroundings. Both are printed in "Curteichcolor" a chrome printing process. Made somewhere between the late 1950's to the early 1960's. Both are gorgeous and show off a lavish lifestyle
 And two more for my growing collection of vintage cards. The top one printed in the "Ternitone Process" is a swimming pool for "Furnished Apartments for gracious living" in Palm Springs, CA.  The marvelous bottom card is Bob Hope's pool, also in Palm Springs. Circa late 1950's - early 1960's.
Tweedle Dee and his companion both adorned in Stan's trademark eternal "8" sign decorate the envelope nicely and baseball stamps are a nice touch as well. Thank you very much Stan - I love your work and the vintage postcards are much appreciated. See you in the mail old chum.
