Notes: If you like presidential libraries and old cars, then have I got the postcard for you!  This is the Harry S Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri.  The two cars, a 1941 Chrysler Royal Club Coupe and a 1941 Chrysler Windsor Sedan, were purchased by the Trumans while Harry Truman was still a Missouri senator.  He was Franklin Roosevelt's last running mate and vice president, and he became President in 1945 upon Roosevelt's death.  Harry Truman was interred in the library's courtyard following his death in 1972.
