Bad Postcards - a Tyrannosaurus Rex at a 1960's Goofy Golf Miniature Golf Course
Via the Viz comic facebook page I saw a link to the BAD POSTCARDS tumblr page. I decided to have a look at what other 'Bad Postcards' would be on there and noticed that this excellent website of vintage American postcards from 1950 to 1975 featured a minigolf postcard!
In fact the first postcard shown on the site is of a “Tyrannosaurus Rex; King of Prehistoric Giants” at the 'Goofy Golf. Magic World at Panama City Beach, Florida.' The Postcard is postally unused, looks to be in great condition and they guess it is from the 1960's.
An excellent website that's well worth a look. There are some great old 'bad' Postcards on there - including one of a Cigar Smoking Alligator!
