Another Kodachrome slide from the Shorpy shoebox, labeled "Florida 1960." View full size. Could there be a postcard on eBay showing the same motel?

Today’s Top 5

Amen, Anonymous Tipster!

I would put on my swim skirt and rubbery cap and swim laps with the kids while hubby relaxed poolside after driving all that way. Later, I would dry off on a towel made in the USA and I would put on my shirtwaist dress and a strand of pearls and go to the diner with kids & husband (still in his tie, of course).

And we would eat delicious diner food without worrying about CARBS.

"Pass the gravy, please, dear."

"With pleasure, honey."

"You looked cute in your swimsuit today, dear."

"Honey! Don't talk naughty in front of the children!"

And then he would lean over and whisper, "I love vacation. Let's 'get cozy' tonight after the kids fall asleep."

Sigh.

Rubbery Swim Cap

Wouldn't it be neat if you could go there, travel back in time, and put on a rubbery swim cap. Tricycle made of metal. Met-al

Amazing to see the toddler

Amazing to see the toddler on the tricycle at the pool's edge. Probably rode to the hotel in daddy's lap in the driver's seat.
How times have changed.

See the guy in the tie and dress shoes...

...relaxing by the pool? I want to marry him.
