(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage M. E. Russell, C. T. Art-Colortone linen postcard from the 1940s. It shows a view of the John Ringling Mansion in Sarasota, Florida.
"The John Ringling Mansion stands on the shore of Sarasota Bay, said to be the most beautiful bay in America. Directly back of this mansion is the 30 acre estate knoen as Ca' D' Zan (Meaning the home of John). The mansion was designed by the celebrated architect Dwight James Baum and was over two years in construction. On the same estate stands the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art housing one of the best collections in America of original paintings by old masters.", reads the description printed on the back.
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, minor wear at the edges.
