Tom Lehrer is Smug

Postcard mystery continues

Here now the most recent postcards I've received from my postcard admirer:

1. Picture of Cyd Charisse dancing in a flowy thing. Nothing on the back. Postmark was, sadly, washed off by the rain so I have no idea where it "came from."

2. The Pont Neuf in Paris. I've been there! I saw that. Postmarked Lexington, KY, about as far from Paris as one can get, it seems. On the back is written "PONT REFLETE" with a few accents over the Es which I am not about to bother playing around with the numpad to get.

3. This is the weird one. Postmarked Australia, April 8. Sent air mail. The front has a subject dear to me, classic roadside architecture. A building in the shape of a teapot with the word "EAT" on the side. (Also a sign denoting "LADIES" next to a door, which leads one to believe it could've been a comfort station of sorts.) Dated 1939. The written caption has to do with the serving of Chun Mee Organic Green Tea.

You've intrigued me something fierce, Postcard Admirer. I am curious to see where this goes next.
