Roy's Postcards: 1983/11/05


I was very impressed by the huge size and height of the Washington Monument.

Postcard front:

The Washington Monument

Postcard back:

The white marble shaft of the Washington Monument rises 555 feet and may be reached by elevator in 70 seconds. The view from the 500-foot level presents the whole panorama of the city of Washington, the Potamic River, and nearby parts of Maryland and Virginia.

Leonard's comments:

Dad, c'mon, this is going on the Internet.

"Dino Sassi" would be a good name for an 80s toy appealing to both boys and girls.
