Wow Tracy we have many things in common for one thing the fun fact about Myrtle beach, NC I always tell everyone I send a South Carolina postcard to is that they are home to a Ripley's Believe It or Not museum! Also we live so close I am sure one day we will meet. We haven't yet been to Asheville, NC which is a few hours away but my mother has been begging to see the Biltmore Estates a well known Vanderbilt Home http://www.biltmore.com/visit. George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre estate. Mr. Vanderbilt created Biltmore as an escape from everyday life. Now, his descendants invite you to enjoy his legacy of hospitality. Thanks again Tracy.
According to CalgareyStampede.com (2010): in 1912 the great Stampede was born from the vision of Guy Weadick. Guy was a famous working cowboy and vaudeville entertainer featured in the traveling wild-west shows that were popular world-wide in the early 1900s. He was a man with a dream of celebrating the romance and authentic culture of the old west.
The Stampede we enjoy today has evolved from Guy's vision. He was successful because he understood that as much as things change, we need to believe in the way things were.
Our historical information tells the story of who we were in our earliest days, and reminds us that Guy was right; fundamentally we believe in the same western values today as we did in 1912.
Many thanks to Gary & Jacob E. for this interesting postcard we had no idea.
