(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Desert Book Company, C. T. Art-Colortone postcard from the 1930s. It shows a Sunset Over Great Salt Lake, Utah.
"This Great Dead Sea, the largest in the world, is located 15 miles west of Salt Lake City. It covers an approximate area of 2,000 square miles, being 50 miles wide and 75 miles long with an average depth of 20 feet. Like the Dead Sea in Palestine, it is fed by the Jordan River, but has no known outlet other than evaporation. The water is 27 percent salt and thousands of tons of salt are processed and shipped annually from this source. The water of the lake is so heavy, one cannot sink, affording the most delightful bathing in the world, which is enjoyed by thousands each season."
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, a few minor stains.
