Postcard: Greetings from Saugus
Saugus, California

Click image to enlarge

"Greetings from Saugus, Calif.," rodeo capital of — well, maybe northern Los Angeles County.

Nondescript 1965-66 Plastichrome postcard (November 1965 is when the maker, Colorpicture Publishers Inc. of Boston, filed a patent on Plastichrome), of a type that might have been sold in places like Dillenbeck Canyon Market. (We'd say the Solemint Store, but it closed in the mid-1960s.)

Canyon Country was only just starting to be called Canyon Country; most folks still called it Saugus.

LW2457: 9600 dpi jpeg from original postcard.
