Wish You Were Here – Restaurant Postcards
So how do you make sure your customers don’t forget their delicious meal? With postcards of your fine eatery to go of course. Back in the day, cafes and restaurants produced a postcard of their establishments to publicise themselves and their wares and here we have a selection for you to peruse. These are mainly from the US of A, and containing some fine examples of Googie Architecture along with great mid-century vibes.
The 50’s, 60’s and 70’s provide the best examples, especially the latter two decades, and many of these fine establishments are still around to this day. Feel free to write in should you have had an experience of any of the places on show, food tales are always welcome here.
They say you should never write an article on restaurant postcards when you’re hungry, as you tend to pig out. Well we’ve managed to stop at 15 images – we think we’ve been very restrained. There were countless postcards of ‘Tiki’ Polynesian 50′s restaurants, but we’ve avoided these and gone for the more adventurous, forward thinking designs, we kinda like that space-age vibe man.
