Mom's Yosemite "Souvenirs"

I'm posting about these items today in honor of my friend's birthday. Happy Birthday, Faith! These are all things that my mother-in-law had saved from her trips to Yosemite. From 1935, this wooden postcard of Half Dome and it's original envelope:
A Cocktail Menu from the Ahwahnee Hotel (50's, I think)
A menu with a watercolor print on the cover from 1955:
A hotel brochure:
and one from Camp Curry:
And two postcards with their original bag from the gift shop -these from 1955, also, I believe:
I hope you enjoyed seeing them!
