Where did Noah's ark land? Programmatic Architecture Original postcard c. 1950 Collection Jim Linderman
If you have ever wondered where Noah’s Ark landed, here it is! North of Leucadia, CA at the Batiquitos lagoon! Note the pair of Giraffes poking their heads out of the roof. George Herbert build the boat in 1946 and it served patrons until around the 1960s. This appears to be a scarce postcard, the only other I find is an illustration. There must be considerable interest in the place, as someone is selling modern copies of the original menu. Deserts seem of most interest. They served up a Camel Banana special, a Brown Bear special, a Giraffe special and a Black Panther hot fudge sundae.
