New postcard!

I received a new postcard this weekend, this time from my friend C who lives in Chicago. He visited the Museum of Science and Industry last week and sent me this postcard of the Fairy Castle. The description reads:
The renowned Fairy Castle is one of the most beloved, permanent displays at the Museum of Science and Industry. A gift to the museum from silent film star Colleen Moore, the castle has appealed to people's imaginations since 1949. The castle was constructed on a scale of one inch to one foot and measures 10 x 8 x 7 feet and features fourteen elaborately decorated rooms.
Thanks, C!
