Wisconsin map postcard mailed in 1966

This nifty and colorful "Lusterchrome" postcard, made by Tichnor Bros., was mailed in July 1966 from Waukesha, Wisconsin, to my great-grandmother in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. The card itself must have been produced before 1966, though, because it includes mention of the Milwaukee Braves. In 1966, the Braves relocated from Milwaukee to Atlanta. 

The cursive note on the back states:
July 24th.
