Greetings From Lorain

Ebay continues to be a fertile supply of vintage images for this blog, and this week is no exception. I found two new “Greetings from Lorain” postcards that I’d never seen before and added them to my ‘virtual collection.’

Here’s the complete collection so far, some of which I posted piecemeal back in 2011. A few of them are obviously generic, but still fun to look at. Strangely though, there’s not a Lighthouse to be found.
Lorain had an impressive advertising theme back in the late 1950s: “An Industrial Empire in Ohio’s Vacationland.” I still think Lorain needs to reintroduce itself into that Vacationland family, even as some sort of uninvited, unwanted shirt-tail relative.
