The Only Paved Street in Town

Postmarked 23 August 1948
U.S. Army Postal Service

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA / Founded in 1914 principally for Alaskan railroad, this busy, modern city is the center of gold and coal mining, fishing, and canning industries.
Dear Zodie: / This a a picture of the main street of Anchorage. It is the only paved street in town. When you get here, Daddy will take you down down and buy you a new sled (as you will need one soon). / Love, Daddy
In the spring of 2010, my grandma, cousin, and I went to Anchorage. What wonderful memories we have from that trip!

The only paved road in town? Wow. Of course that's why Model T's had such high ground clearance!
