Key West, Florida

August 2, 2020

We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times.  Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe.  We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better.  In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home. 

Alligator border postcards are very collectible and getting harder to find each year. 

Floridians have learned to live with alligators.  They are ubiquitous in our golf courses, residential ponds, canals, and as the University of Florida's "Fightin' Gators" mascots, Albert and his "wife" Alberta.

I have a large collection of postcards.  I began with the real thing, both new and used.  My collection includes mainly cards that were printed before I moved here in 1960.

My personal collection includes very few alligator border post cards, however, because of their rarity. 

I found a collection of 165 such cards on the internet and downloaded them to share with you.

We believe the originals of these postcards were printed in Germany and date back to 1908 when there were very few large cities in Florida.

This page includes 12 alligator postcards of various scenes in Key West.
