Baby...You're the Greatest! (It's Gam-tastic!)

1940's pin-up style amateur photocard
This is one of those photo postcards, usually meant to share with the recipient, where the sender was when he or she wrote it. This photo-card is different. I am going out on a limb here and guess that this was a gal taking a picture to send to her soldier overseas. At least I hope that was the reason. It was bad enough that anyone could read your mail on a postcard, but to send a cheesecake image...I'm not sure this ever made it to its intended destination. Nice gams, though.

If it was wartime, like the early 1940's, I would have expected a postcard more like this:
Army air corps.

I like the color illustration, even though the fine print claims it's an "Official Photograph." It's no pin-up, but a nice representation of air power.
