Going through old postcards today, I came across one of my all-time favorites. While the edges are tattered and torn, the central portion of the card remains very intact and beautiful with age. You may have seen it before on AMothersJournal.com -- before the big crash, as I will call it.
I have always admired the handwriting on the back of the postcard but I don't ever remember having the words sink in like they did today.
Shipped another case of roses yesterday.
It was addressed to Mrs. Anna Curtius
It is postmarked Jun. 23 1909
Now Peeps. Postcards keep people and history and love alive! It is one of the reasons I love postcards so much!!
I began searching online and found a very interesting piece of history in Google's free ebooks.
Now. About that rose shipment. At first I was thinking of stems of roses but then I wondered if maybe it was rose plants for a garden. And the postcard seems a German postcard to me. I would love to find more information about this lady. In searching for the address in New Brighton, I am led to a website of the Catholic Church, I believe. New Brighton and Port Richmond are not so far away from each other. It just brings all sorts of questions to mind.
On that note I will say...
Enjoy this day!
