The back only says

"Mary Loveridge + Gladys

Lillian, Jack + Me

April 8 1972"

Perhaps it's a reference to a wild night at the adjacent property.

I know this is a rather inauspicious way to start the annual updates, but this place meant something for people who grew up in this suburb. Pages devoted to boomer recollections of life in Tinley Park always mention Jardines. The local's nostalgic longing meant nothing to postcard collectors, though. You know what makes this one special?

THE PHONE BOOTH. There are people who collect postcards that happen to have a phone booth. Why? Don't ask. There isn't any answer. They just like them.

Anyway: it looks less like a restaurant than someone's house. Same for the Motel office, too.
