Magical Mystery Postcard #8 Art by Carrie Carlton

The Kodak black'n'orange livery, I get.

The sports stadium half-time photo op, I get.

Q/ What is going on with the fans in the stands?

Cheers,

Who is Carrie Carlton? She definitely didn't draw the 1955 Ford Convertible. It was clipped out of a 1955 Ford Ad. She didn't even remove the ad image viewed through the passengers window.

I think I have the original ad it came from. I'll check my inventory and if I do, I will take a photo and post it.

... Who is Carrie Carlton? ...


The postcard imprint reads "Carrie Carlton AKA Carioca", but googling only turns-up one other card.

Well-spotted!

Pulled that one out pretty quick, dsmith426 ... 'inventory' ... do you deal in old paper?

Cheers,

Timothy Leary might have something to do with this post card. It looks like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Gulliver's Travels. There is a 220 foot 1955 Ford convertible driven by an extremely large woman running over a band at a half time show of American football in a Chinese football stadium. Hmmm.

Well-spotted, bookbndrbob!



Q/ Anybody got any covers from the Leary-Liddy tour?


Quote:
Leary began to foster an improbable friendship with former foe G. Gordon Liddy, the Watergate burglar and conservative radio talk-show host. They toured the lecture circuit in 1982 as ex-cons ... debating different social and fiscal issues from gay rights and abortion to welfare and the environment, with Leary generally espousing left-wing views and Liddy continuing to conform to a right-wing stance. The tour generated massive publicity and considerable funds for both.

Truth is almost always stranger than fiction. Didn't know about the G. Gordon Liddy connection. That is quite a duo. Anyway, here is photograph of Tim from March of 1968, when he was guest lecturing at the college I was attending.
