Travelers often collected postcards of the inns and hotels they visited. Guests enjoyed beautiful architecture, scenic views, and luxurious rooms, all of which often appeared on souvenir postcards such as this one. Staying at an inn or 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. This postcard, postmarked 1925, captures the experience of one traveler who wrote on the reverse side, "...wishing you could be up here with us enjoying the gorgeous Autumn colors. Mt. Washington is wearing his first cap of snow for the season and it looks chilly."
