Franked 1967, this vintage French postcard features a 1947 Esquire illustration of the iconic Harry's New York Bar in Paris. For Americans and ex-pats coming to visit the legendary birthplace of the Bloody Mary, the bar's slogan was "Just tell the taxi driver 'sank roo Doe noo,' " which sounds like gibberish unless you hear a French person say it and then it's downright musical! And of course, it's the address of the bar: 5 Rue Daunou. The bar has a most interesting history and is associated with many famous names. It really was a bar in New York that was dismantled and shipped to France. According to Wiki, the "Ivories" Piano Bar at Harry's is where George Gershwin composed An American in Paris. This postcard shows the slightest hints of wear at the corner tips. For its age, in overall excellent condition. It measures about 3.75 by 5.5 inches.
