MONSTERS of PENSACOLA
The LITTLE MONSTERS of PENSACOLA series features our city's best citizen messing around on its most famous locations --- and some locations known only to the locals. Each postcard has a brief description on its back which is copied here below each card. The last image on the botton of this page shows the standard backside of each postcard.
Our postcards are printed on glossy cardstock and given a glossier UV coating to prevent fading by sunlight.

Not satisfied with alabaster sand, crystal-clear emerald waters,
and more sunshine than anyone could ever want, Pensacola youths
are always looking for ways to make beach life a little more exciting...
A 75-year tradition of excellent seafood (and the most alluring sign in Pensacola) makes Joe Patti’s the obvious choice for any hungry Monster. The kiddie pool is always just a little too chilly for Little Monsters of Pensacola. And you think you have a fish story? Housed in its iconic art deco building, Pensacola’s Temple Beth-El
was the first congregation in Florida, established in 1876.
It was also a home to the first woman, a Pensacola native, who
performed rabbinical services in the US. And it’s the first temple to
ever have a 200-foot kid spin a dradle on its roof.
No, really, we’re not kidding—Paula Ackerman performed
services from 1950-53. Google it.
Established in 1911, the Naval Air Station in Pensacola is the primary training base for all Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard Aviators and Naval Flight Officers—truly the Cradle of Naval Aviation. NAS is also home to the Blue Angels, the Navy’s (totally amazing) flight demonstration squadron. “Pretty good,” is the common response on the Fishing Bridge
of Pensacola Beach. The bridge also offers a breath-taking view
of the beach and the Gulf. When you’re done fishing and sightseeing,
make sure you take a stroll down the boardwalk; it’s right behind the
water tower there and just left of the ferris wheel, in the distance.
We didn't have the heart to tell her that wasn't her royal throne. You wanna tell her? “ALCANIZ NOW” sums up the tricky intersection of Pensacola’s Alcaniz Street and the overpass from Interstate 110. Oh, and a train crossing with no stop sign. And a “one-way-into-a-two-way-road” merge. It’s a battle zone, especially if Pensacola’s Little Monsters come to play.
The old expression takes on a new meaning when Pensacola’s
Little Monsters mess around on Graffiti Bridge.
The classic zydaco tune “Iko” brings Pensacola to a halt when two little Monsters
sing it to patty cake over the I-10 extension. Jackomo feena nay!
Hurricanes are nothing compared to Pensacola’s little Monsters. Our city’s Little Monsters were hurt real bad by
BP’s oil spill which polluted their pretty beach.
Some of them decided to express their offense in person.
The Observation Wheel is one of the many fun,
family-oriented sites on Pensacola Beach.
To see all the beach has to offer, visit.
Actually, it’s not easy. But climbing the 177 steps to the top
of the Pensacola Lighthouse is worth it. Built in 1859 on the
Naval Air Station, the lighthouse has survived an earthquake,
a Civil War, and damage by lightning. After beholding the
spectaular view at the top, make sure you also visit the
National Naval Aviation Museum and catch
a Blue Angel air show if they’re in town.
Below is the standard backside of every postcard. The descriptions of the
images (above) are printed in the upper left hand corner.
