This is the place, Babe!
Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas

Baseball great Babe Ruth at Hot Springs in the 1920s.  He's only one of millions who have come for the lakes, forests, thermal baths, natural beauty - and now even more family attractions like Magic Springs / Crystal Falls theme park and Garvan Woodland Gardens, plus the region's best, most modern and most complete convention facilities.

This advertising postcard is postmarked in 2014.
