Alternate title:"Floating Like a Cork." Saltair, Salt Lake City, Utah
Summary:A postcard featuring swimmers floating in the Great Salt Lake outside Salt Lake City, Utah, circa 1915-1930. Caption reads: "About eighteen miles west of Salt Lake City is the greatest water wonder in all the world - the Great Salt Lake. It has no outlet, is opaline green in color and averages 22 per cent salt - almost to saturation. The water is ideal for bathing - you "float like a cork" and come out refreshed, invigorated - and hungry." Postcard number: 1606.
