Roy's Postcards: 1984/04/24

Inscription:

Daddy and I saw the Queen Mary the other day when we went to Cabrillo Marine Museum. We are at the airport tonight to get Mommy and Rachel who are coming home from Texas.

Postcard back:

THE QUEEN MARY, escorted by thousands of small craft, fireboats and Coast Guard Cutters, sailed proudly into Long Beach Harbor, 10 A.M. December 9, 1967. Tired and travel-worn, the Queen Mary was slowly edged into Pier E to begin the conversion to her new career as a marine museum, hotel-restaurant - shop - tourist and convention complex.

Leonard's comments:

This photo shows the "Three Bs" of a successful postcard: Boats, Blimps, and additional Boats.
