Real Jolly Time

Mt Hood (1914)

Mt Hood (Union Oil 1955)


Union Oil printed several series of postcards in the early 20th Century; this one is from the 1955 series, although the photograph is a reprint from an earlier line. The postcards were distributed through their gas stations in the United States. I wish gas stations would do that today!

Both of these postcards show the beautiful Oregon mountain, Mount Hood, which is over 11,000 feet, and is the largest mountain in Oregon.

Lovely postcards. I travelled around the US quite a bit after graduating but never made it to Oregon. Not sure when my next visit to the US will be but the western states above California will be on the list.
