A Card as Mysterious as Its Subject

Across the Atlantic with Amelia Earhart

Notes: I found this card in with the cards that I haven't yet blogged.  It is unused, and I have absolutely no idea where it came from or when I got it.  It shows Amelia Earhart's plane crossing the Atlantic, which made her the first woman to cross the ocean alone.  Interestingly, her last name is spelled incorrectly on the front of the card, but correctly on the back.  She is, of course, most famous for disappearing, along with her navigator Fred Noonan, while on the way from Lae, New Guinea to Howland Island in July, 1937.  There have been many searches for any evidence of what happened to them, but nothing conclusive has ever been found.
