Inscription:

We traveled from L.A. yesterday arriving at 12:30 a.m. The Temple was a welcome sight after a long journey. We went down and drove aroudn it this morning. Then journeyed on to Provo.

Postcard back:

ST. GEORGE TEMPLE
Utah's first Mormon Temple, completed in 1877, where baptisms, marriages and other sacred ordinances are performed. construction of this sacred edifice was commenced almost immediately after the impoverished Latter-Day Saints settled in this territory. This represents only one of the many temples the Mormons have built throughout the world.

Leonard's comments:

I like postcards more than staged photos because the person taking the picture doesn't have the clout to make whoever parked that ugly sedan in front of the temple, move their car. Or maybe it's the photographer's sedan in the first place.
