Greetings from Wyoming, “The Last of the Old West”. The large letter postcard was mailed in 1941 and has this description on the back:
Wyoming is still the state where primitive nature may be found. Great mountain areas are unspoiled by human works and are reached by trails. Fish and Big game are abundant and great wide open unfenced prairies spread out for scores of miles. Here is the home of the dude ranch, the hunting camp, the park trips, the cowboy and cow pony and many other colorful characteristics of the old West.
