Postcard 94: Postmarked June 16th, 1969, Natural Bridge, VA

Natural Bridge
One of the Seven Natural
Wonders of the World. There is no other struc-
ture like it. The Lee Highway, U.S. No. 11 passes
over Natural Bridge. It is higher by 55 feet than
Niagara Falls. The height of the bridge from the
stream below to the upper surface is 215 feet.
It has a span of 90 feet between the walls,
width averages 100 feet and the arch is 40 feet
Hotel and Motor Lodge accommodations, gift
shop and cafeteria open all year. Drama of
Creation nightly.
Dear Nanny,
We're relaxing this weekend
and no doubt you'll hear from
us by phone before you get
this, nevertheless we're thinking
about you. Went to Lexington VA,
saw VMI, Natural Bridge today
& will stop by Appomattox today
enroute back to Norfolk Love Jane & Wink
Pub. by Natural Bridge of Virginia, Inc.
