Every month Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover hosts the Second on the Second. She invites us to look through older posts and bring back one we would like to share again. I like old postcards. I only have a few. I think I may have brought this post to the top once before, not sure. I do know it always amuses me though.
A couple of weeks ago I said I would share some old postcards. This is the second one.
This is perhaps my favorite of the old postcard I have. Of course when I shuffle through them I find another goody and then that immediately becomes my favorite. You can see this postcard has suffered some wear and tear.
Dear Sister all is well hope you are as happy as this pair seem to be
The postcard is dated 1909. Sent from sister to sister and once again no street address needed. I don't know which I enjoy more, the old pictures on the front or the special messages on the backs of the cards.
Send someone a postcard today. You will probably need their street address and zip code. Just be careful what you write on the card. Who knows, maybe someone will be reading it over a hundred years from now. Reading it and trying to explain to their children that these pieces of paper were sent through a process that ended up with someone walking around and hand delivering the card to the recipient's mailbox. Then they will have to explain what a mailbox is (or was).
Do you have an old post that deserves a second look? Join us!
