Beware of Traveling Salesmen...save your virtue!

This is a classic motel postcard that I have posted before thanks to the great image of Alfred E Neuman. What I overlooked was the great note on the back.

Motel Postcard, traveling salesmen,1957
 Here's the text:
"Dear Joan -
Watch out for these guys in Motels - all they want to do is make you. I know. First, they invite you out, get you tired out from swimming and sun, take you back to their room and then you're at their mercy. Terrible lot - especially traveling salesmen! huff, Buni (Beni?)"

Classic advice from the road.

  1. Funny, I posted a letter to Dear Abby that was in my Grandfather's or Dad's things about traveling salesmen. http://www.retrohound.com/why-people-used-to-read-the-newspaper/
