In 2014, I had a year-long project of collecting vintage tearoom postcards. I originally planned to feature one from every state, but alas, Alaska tripped me up early on! Try as I might, I couldn't locate a vintage tearoom postcard from Alaska, so I just left that alert up on eBay in case one ever appeared. And lo and behold, I recently found it—a postcard advertised as being from the Moraine Lake Tea Room in Alaska. It's postally unused so I don't know the era, but if I had to guess, I would say … old! Cool, huh?
After my "Alaskan" postcard arrived, I began to Google to see what's near Moraine Lake today. To my surprise, Moraine Lake Lodge is still in business, and the view today looks very much the same. To my even greater surprise, I learned that Moraine Lake Lodge is in Alberta, Canada, not Alaska, so it's back to the drawing board on finding that vintage tearoom postcard from Alaska!
