Lloyd's Alamo Plaza Court, Shelbyville, Tennessee linen postcard
Can't get away this summer? Yearn for an earlier time when the pace was slower, life was simpler?
Why not slip away to Tennessee for a few days and at the end of a long day pull into a roadside motel offering, as does Lloyd's in Shelbyville, electric heat - wait, no, we need air-conditioning!!! - tile baths, and Beautyrest mattresses for a good night's sleep.

Cleveland Motor Court, Cleveland, Tennessee linen postcard
Time for some shopping along Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs California? Then a little dining in the evening to cap off an enjoyable day?
Then back to the El Dorado Hotel for some rest and out on the Presidential jet first thing in the morning. Where will postcards take us next?
White's Motel Court Gettysburg Pennsylvania 1954 linen postcard
Postmarked 1954, the sender of this card records that it rained all the way from Carlisle PA to Gettysburg but that "it ain't ruining our spirit". She reports "I already love married life & wish it so much for you Julia. It's wonderful!!!" No report on the tour of the Gettysburg national site.
Skyline Parkway Motor Court Motel Waynesboro Viriginia linen postcard
Located on the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains - offering "cool, comfortable, modern cottages ... each with an unsurpassed view of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The full parking lot suggests it was a popular place to stay. Perhaps it was the Howard Johnson restaurant and the Gulf Service station adjacent to the motel that sealed the deal.
