WANTED: vintage vaction resort postcards
Posted: Tue Dec 07, 2004 12:35 pm
I am looking for vintage postcards of vacation resorts from the 40s-50s-60s, which may not be in business today, or have changed their name. They may be used in a multimedia project. Any resources besides ebay would be great!

Places like the Mountain Lake Resort near Roanoke, Virginia (where Dirty Dancing was filmed)?

Anywhere that says "resort", meaning a ski scene, beach scene, riding a tram, maybe a googie hotel, pool side, mountain cabin, packet stationwagon driving through the woods. People doing the vacation thing. Distinctly retro.
Maybe not a postcard, maybe an ad in a vintage magazine. Could be an illustration. I am looking for inspiration for my illustrator.
