Back in the day, each vacation a family took wouldn't be complete without one or both of the following: a postcard sent to family and friends back home, with the pre-requisite "Wish You Were Here" and a collection of souvenirs for the kids.
In the 19450s and 1950s, a popular rememberance of a trip away was a felt pennant. We recently accquired this one featuring our beloved SchroonLake on Ebay. For something more than 50 years old, it's in pretty good shape -- although it's missing the very tip.
What souvenirs do you remember as a kid? And do you still have them? Tell us about them in comments.
