Vasquez Rocks, 1945. Real photo postcard printed on EKC paper, a Kodak brand.
Printed inscription reads: "Vasquez Rocks, near Oaks Garage, Mint Canyon, Cal." Perhaps the
issuer thought the Oaks Garage on the Mint Canyon (Sierra) Highway, which would become
Le Chêne French restaurant, was a better-known landmark than Vasquez Rocks.
Undivided back, not postally used. Handwriting on back reads: "12 June 45 / Lancaster, Calif.," which
isn't quite correct. It's in Agua Dulce. June 12, 1945 might be the date the original collector of this postcard visited the rocks.
