Hippos at home

Dublin Core

Title

Hippos at home

Subject

Description

The setting takes place on a body of water. There is a boat gliding on the water as it conducts a tour. It is full of passengers who look at their surroundings in awe. The principle subjects are the hippopotami, whose heads are eagerly swarming around and about the boat. The passengers look at the animals with curiosity and some of them are snapping pictures.
A small ferry boat hosting park guests cruises through a murky pond. The boat is easing past the five hippos peaking their heads above water. As passengers, like the little girl in the front left corner gazing in amazement. While other guests take photographs of the creatures.

Dad:
We would like [to] have you develop these films for us. David's [rodachrome], red [tops], + mine are the [Ertachrome], blue tops. {There] are six of each.

Disneyland was just fascinating with all its attractions. One could spend a whole day in that place. Cali is full of peaches, grapes + almonds. Went swimming is Pacific yesterday. [Qich(.]

Archivist's Comment

SZ entered 6-10-2018. It was very bizarre, how there was no address or postmark, dates, as well as the lack of a stamp. How could this postcard have expected to be mailed in this manner?
