Greetings from Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas - Postcard, c. 1930s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2) This is an original vintage postcard from the 1940s. It shows a view of the Hot Water Fountain on Central Ave. in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. 

Here I am at last in the good old town
Hot Springs, Ark., is the city of renown,
Famed for its wonderful Hot Water Springs,
Of its healing merits the poets sing. 
If you are ill and cannot sleep at night,
Then come and bathe and you will feel alright.
If you are weary and tired of life,
Of its tribulations and ceaseless strife, 
If you are old and worn and feeling blue,
Then drink Hot Springs Water, it will life renew, 
If your brain feels numb from over application,
of Book-keeping, Fractions and Multiplication, 
The Hot Springs Water will restore your brain
To its normal condition and relieve the strain. 
Have your deepest affections been misplaced, 
Is your heart broken and sadly defaced,
Do you look in the future with hopeless despair,
No hope of love, no pleasure, awaits you there?
If these afflictions are yours my friend,
The cheer up! for these troubles will end.
If you will come to the Hot Springs and soak
As long as you can without going broke,
And drink hot water from morning till night,
Till your grief is submerged and your heart is light,
And drink five gallons of Hot Water a day,
Then you'll be happy, and then you'll be gay."
