Yes, all three postcards are from different years and from different people, but they all have the same stamp and use the word swell.

I have the second one of those and I think it's swell... Would love to have the Casino Ballroom. It is even more swell... It is amazing how swell everything was back in those days. I have noticed that many times myself. I have even used the word swell several times on my blog for effect. I think maybe it is due a comeback. Let's promote things that are swell. That should be fun for awhile.
