Postcard, Interior of Coronado Lodge, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, 1950

Posted to California from Amarillo, Texas, on New Year's Day 1950, this card thanks the recipient for a Christmas present and recommends the lodge as an after-church destination for a sandwich. Decorated by a concessionaire, the interior displays the Texas and the American flags, animal trophies, and exhibit cases. A rustic armchair and wooden benches sit comfortably among the manufactured Thonet side chairs around the dining tables.
