“Nickname – Pelican State. 1960 Population – 3,257,022. Area in Sq. Miles – 48,506. Entered the Union, Apr. 8, 1812.”

Very pretty state map vintage postcard. Wonderful colors. For being on such a small scale, the faces and poses are so full of expression. Look at the fish (!) And though it’s not mentioned on the back of the postcard with the other facts, the pelican is holding the state flower – the magnolia.
