|Found: Indian Crossing, Chain O'Lakes, Waupaca, Wis. "The Killarneys of America" in the Heart of Wisconsin.|
Natural Color Postcard made in U.S.A. by E. C. Kropp Co. circa 1947
The Wisconsin vacation land described on postcards often contrasts with the handwritten reportage on the backside. On this card, the sender refers to "squirting" DDT (an insecticide that emerged during WWII) around to "get rid of the varmints" while accepting the inevitable sunburn and freckles.The 1920s era Indian Crossing Casino depicted on the front remains in near original condition due to the dedication in the past 30 years of owners Maria and Bill Belke. Casino means "gathering place" not gambling place.
