At first glance, I thought that was a modern card. Wow, 102 years old. I wonder what that same view looks like today.

I suggest you travel over there and find out. Please don't forget to send me a postcard while you're there!

Great idea. As soon as they build a road from here to there, I'm on it! Yours will be the first postcard I send. :)
