Vintage Valentines and Kiddie's Play Roof

I was so charmed by this vintage postcard I found yesterday of the Kiddie's Play Roof Top at The St. George Hotel. Boy, I'd have liked to go there. Of course I imagine it just like this - as an illustration. Wasn't the past all like this? I looked for actual pictures of the play roof and didn't find any.

I have added the postcard above to the shop along with a number of vintage valentines. The 1920's ice skater valentine below is moveable and so cute.

  1. The Kiddies Play Roof looks like it was fun, assuming kids had access to the windmill. Otherwise it was just a couple of tents, a sandbox, some plants and a water-filled basin.
    The part I like is the awnings. Canvas awnings were everywhere before the advent of air conditioning. They kept buildings somewhat cool and they looked good, too.
