Hotel Colonial, St. Augustine, Fla.
In the old colonial times
St. Augustine could boast
Of no great public mansions
Of no bright and genial host
Menendez and de Leon
Loudonniere and the rest
Were content with wigwams
There were the Indians' best.
Now at the very Gates
Of old St. Augustine
In the shadow of the battlements
Across the old fort green
The Colonial stands conspicuous
It's doors wide open flung
The cooks are rushed to fill the menu
So delicately done
The guests come flocking hither
From Gates and Fort and Golfing Green
It is the hour of dinner
The Hotel Colonial is one of the most modern hotels in Florida, located in the center of the city, convenient to all places of amusement and recreation, to the stores, churches, post office, express and telegraph offices, Excellent table, large sunny rooms, homelike surroundings, make this one of St. Augustine's most popular hotels. Overlooking Matanzas Bay, City Gates, golf links and the Old Spanish Fort.

I LOVE how horrible this postcard is!! For some reason, bad poetry on a postcard just puts a huge smile on my face ;-)
My sister in law Heidi gave me 7 vintage postcards as part of my Christmas gift and this is one of them! (one of my favs from the 7)
