How I spent my Summer Vacation...

VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE
Been there...
Done that!
LEXINGTON, VIRGINIA
"A pretty little town. 
No time to spend there just a drive through 
and a stop for supplies"
 Founded in 1839, Virginia Military Institute has long been recognized as a splendid school.  The services of the V.M.I. Cadets of the Battle of New Market has gone down in history as one of the outstanding military achievements of the Civil War.

Birthplace of Helen Keller, Tuscumbia, Ala.
Back of card: Alabama's famous Helen Keller.  Today, Miss Keller is a miracle and  a wonder of the world.  In her honor the first public library in the State of Alabama was opened in Tuscumbia and named 
"The Helen Keller Library."
"This is another good clip, go ahead take the time."
"Was always proud that Helen Keller 
came from my home state, Alabama.
She died in 1968 that doesn't seem so long ago."

TABERNACLE

Erected in Grateful Remembrance of the Mercy of God to the Mormon Pioneers.
Sea Gull Monument, Temple Block,
Monument erected in commemoration of the Miraculous Delivery of the Mormon Pioneers from starvation when a plague of crickets threatened destruction of their crops in 184 and 1849.  Flocks of Sea Gulls appeared and preyed upon the destroyers until the pests vanished and the people were saved.  Since then the Gulls have been protected in Utah by Legislative Enactment.

Newest of Salt Lake City Hotels, the Hotel Temple Square with its 200 comfortable rooms is located opposite fascinating Temple Square providing the city's favorite Coffee Shop and an ideal starting point for sightseeing and shopping.

Message on back:  July, 18, 1959  Here for one night.  
Temple is beautiful. 97 yesterday but dry.  Enjoyed this hotel.   
Love, G. and S.
