Travelers often collected postcards of the hotels they visited. Hotel guests enjoyed beautiful architecture, sky-high views, and luxurious rooms, all of which often appeared on souvenir postcards such as this one. Staying in a hotel was one of the main attractions of a trip, as it offered vacationers an escape from daily life but with all the comforts of home and sometimes even more. For some, area attractions were just as appealing. This postcard documents one traveler's experience, with an inscription on the reverse side which reads: "Leonard and I took a seaplane ride yesterday. It was a wonderful experience. We were in the air about 20 minutes. It is the only way to see this Adirondack country. Beautiful from 2000 feet up in the air."
