Wisconsin Dells Real Photo Postcards - $25 (Oscoda, Michigan)

These are clean, unused black-and-white photo postcards from the boat docks at Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. I’m guessing they date from the 1950’s era or thereabouts.

One view shows the tour boat, FLYING CLOUD, with its crew of two men. In the background are two other boats, one bearing the name, PASTIME. The other one’s bow is not visible and no name appears. A high bridge is visible on the skyline.

The second card shows a busy scene on the docks, looking down at the river. There are at least a half dozen tour boats in this scene, only one of whose name is visible. The name is partly blocked, but it looks like it might be WINNEBAGO. A dozen or so people are walking and standing at river level, below a building with a sign, Dells Boat Co. The women in this card are wearing long dresses, which suggests the 1950’s or earlier date. No motor vehicles appear on either of the cards.

Price for the two: $25, sent First Class Mail to Wisconsin addresses. I suggest payment by personal check, but cash or USPS Money Order are okay. I am located in northern Michigan.
