Random postcard!

Dream of this, dream of this, dream of this, dream of this:

From Postcards

Bought in a used bookstore in Champaign, IL--and now there's yet another category of vintage postcards I'm interested in. This is the Orange Blossom Special, which apparently was famous (although not being much of a train expert--to be discussed in a post I've been putting off for a while now--I hadn't known about it). I don't think I can recreate the excitement this image evokes by riding on the Metra today and buying a bag of oranges, but we'll see. Oh, and I've decided to try writing notes for the pieces I've been putting off--it's not just the photo uploading that I'm having trouble with, it's getting writing done.

Very nice find! Any idea how old the card is?
