Blue Ridge Parkway
Connecting the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, Va. with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee, this scenic mountain-top highway unfolds new and spectacular views of valleys and distant mountain peaks for almost 500 miles through the Blue Ridge Mountains.  This view showing a rustic rail fence was taken near Doughton Park in N.C.

Highest Point on the Blue Ridge Parkway - Elevation 6053 feet.  Located on the crest of the Balsam Mountain Range south of Asheville, North Carolina this is the highest point reached by the Parkway along its entire length.

The Concord Hotel - Kiamesha Lake, New York

I previously posted three postcards from this hotel and found a few more at an antique show last month.  One of them is the same view as on the previous post but the coloring on the card is different.  The hotel has been demolished but you can see some photos of its decay prior to that, here.  All of these cards had the same information on the back so I will only place it after the first card.

The colorful tile roofs and the background tower complement the Spanish styling of this Country Club Plaza scene.  This is Pomona Court with its delightful fountain and bronze statue of Pomona, Goddess of Vineyards and Orchards.  This attractive building is the new Woolf Brothers store on the Country Club Plaza.  Location:  Broadway at Ward Parkway, Kansas City, Missouri

In this image grab from Google Maps you can see this lovely building is still standing and looking great.
