'A Joy Ride in Florida

Dublin Core

Title

'A Joy Ride in Florida

Description

Depicted on this postcard we see a mash up of real-life images and art. There are nine African- American children sitting on an extremely large alligator in the middle of a body of water that appears to be a lake or river. The children seemed to be cutouts from other pictures as some seem to be bigger than others in terms of relative size. The kids are dressed in vibrant yet older garments and none of them have any shoes on. In the background, we see many beautiful palm trees, which are quintessential to Florida. There are also a lot of palm trees, grass and bushes in the background.

In Florida there is sunshine.
Almost every day.
And lakes and palms and piney woods,
No matter where you stray.
