In Wyoming, Where the Old West Still Lives - Postcard, c. 1940s


(3 1/2 x 5 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Sanborn Souvenir Co. postcard from the 1940s. It shows a souvenir poem, "In Wyoming - Where the Old West Still Lives".

Have you ever seen the sunshine on the high and rolling plain?
Did you ever smell wet sagebrush after sudden spring rain?
Have you ever felt the smart and sting of gravel in your face?
Then you've never known the glamour of that God-forsaken place,
Have you ever seen the skyline when the evening shadows fall, 
Find the mountains look like cardboard, and you hear the Coyotes Call?
Have you seen the Painted Bad Lands, in their yellow, red and blue?
Then you'll never know how lonesome life can be until you do, 
Have you seen the sand and sagebrush, while down the hills,
Along the draws the cooling shadows lay?
It's lonesome, and it's desolate, it's off the beaten track, 
But once you've caught the lure of it,
You're homesick 'til you're back, In WYOMING!"

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, minor paper loss at backside upper right corner.
