PostCard Friendship Friday... #2
Oh my! just stumbled across this piece of personal history. This is a postcard of the very exclusive (in it's day) tourist camp.
The bottom of the card reads" Hillbrow Tourist Camp, Highway 8 between St. Cathrines' and Niagara Falls. Mrs. R.E Cudney , Prop.
When I saw this card in a stack I knew I recognized the name, if I'm not mistaken, (and Alice will correct me if I'm wrong, hopefully) I think it was Suzanne Cudney that was a runner-up to the Miss Hamilton Beauty Contest along with my sister Donna, Miss Polonia. Probably 40 years ago. Boy am I old.
This tourist camp was "the place" for tourists in the area, now I think it might be a shopping mall. It use to seem so far away from our home in Hamilton, now it's the "burbs" of Hamilton, the bedroom community, unfortunately many of the orchards went as well, and it's a very speck of the green belt it use to be. Well this is my personal postcard post for a Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.
