"Greeting from Bryce Canyon, Utah"
From Best of the West Prints - published by Blackner Card and Souvenir Co.   Truly tasteless!

"Entrance log at Trees of Mysteries Park - Redwood Highway, Calif."
Nothing says welcome more than an attraction with it’s own “Entrance Log.”  Especially when there’s a giant guy holding an giant axe waiting to greet you at the other end.  This place still exists today - though it favors Sky Rides and Paul Bunyan statues over your tired old run-of-the-mill axe wielding lumberjack!

"Rev. McCartney "the Goat Man" takes a break, with drinks for the crowd. Behind him is the Pullman Coach and observation platform of his two-car goat-train. He slept under the ecologically undesirable mess of junk for more than thirty years before parking the iron wheeled wagon, and acquiring a more practical rubber-tired rig that he now uses."
When cola endorsement deals go horribly wrong…
And who writes this dribble? This has got to be one of the most painful card back descriptions I’ve ever read!

"Airview Kansas Oil Refinery - Kansas ranks fifth in the nation in production of crude oil, with an estimated annual production of 124 million barrels with a value of 351.1 million."
Nothing says Wish You Weren’t Here more than sending a postcard of an oil refinery!
The oil production numbers have dropped significantly. Kansas produced about 46.8 million barrels of oil in 2013, up 7% from 2012 but nowhere near the levels this card states.
