Postcard is virtually pristine and intact except for small tear in the lower-right margin not affecting the image. A Fine copy. This postcard shows a scenic view of Mt. St. Helens, prior to the 1980 eruption, from Harmony Falls Lodge in Washington, presumably at sunrise. A tree and Spirit Lake are in the foreground. Harmony Falls Lodge was located at the edge of Spirit Lake. After Mt. St. Helens erupted, the resulting debris avalanche fell into the lake and raised lake levels, thus submerging the lodge and other buildings in the vicinity.
