The Keys Letter 1976

This is an interesting find – a pre-printed letter meant to be sent to friends “back home”. It’s undated, but comes from a collection dated 1976, though it’s likely printed a bit earlier as it mentions the Turtle Kraals in Key West, the location where they stored sea turtles before slaughtering them to eat. That ended in the early 1970s because the turtles became endangered through over-hunting.

It describes the sights in the Keys as one travels south west to Key West.
