Postcards 2020 Wrightsville Beach Marine Corrosion Testing Station

The Marine Corrosion Testing Station at Wrightsville Beach, NC  and an odd subject for a postcard. This card is postmarked Aug 6 1966. And it was sent to a lady in La Junta, Colorado. It says that the International Nickel Company operated this station, the largest of its kind in the world! Metals, paints, ropes and woods are being studied for their resistance to marine degradation. 

The message on the back of the card is also interesting: "Dear Mother, We just took off hardly packed- we had to get away for a few days. We called Donald this A. M.  He was in bed hadn't gone to work. Love, Grace."
