Postcard back:

Eight-foot-high head reveals the titanic sculpture of the ancient Olmec civilization in Middle America. Matthew W. Stirling, leader of National geographic-Smithsonian Expeditions from 1938 through 1946, uncovered 11 stone heads in the vicinity of La Venta, Tabasco, Mexico. National Geographic Society's Explorers Hall displays the cast.

Leonard's comments:

When I first saw this postcard I thought the picture was taken in a motel lobby.
