Found: Greetings From Crandon, Wisconsin. Woodland Splash.
Hand-written in ballpoint pen on back:
"Hi: Hope you are pretty good, again. We ran away from everything to have a rest.
We are having fun inspite of the weather. Caught pan fish only so far.
We met some nice people to have some good card games with if nothing else.
Love, Bert and Bob Lestina." Postmarked August 25, 1956.
Before the decades long Crandon cooper mine debate between Native American tribes, environmentalists, Exxon, and the State of Wisconsin DNR; Crandon was a vacation retreat. Like this postcard message reads: "We ran away from everything to have a rest." Playing cards and catching panfish seems a peaceful land use far away from the proposals to build a massive mine with potential to contaminate land and water.
