Desert Sweethearts

While in California, I found 9 postcards sent by soldiers at an antique mall in San Juan Capistrano. The following card is my favorite:

The front says “Desert Sweethearts,” and shows two donkeys cuddling each other. “The burro is unconsciously a comedian- wise and adverse to labor. These hardy shaggy little animals were introduced into the Southwest by the Spaniards, and proved indispensable in the mines and on the desert. They have multiplied to great droves in some sections, and do a great deal of damage.”

The card was sent April 25, 1945 by Jesse Sharp to his sister in New York state.

    Cute! I have a similar image featured in a folder of desert scenes, but it’s labeled “Romance on the Desert”.
