And so it begins… I love found postcards. I love imagining all the possibilities. How did the writer and receiver know each other? What were people feeling? Sometimes postcards are really just a duty. “Hey look, I’m on vacation. HAHA, you’re not!”

So here is episode #1

Postmark: July 16, 1941, Cincinnati, OH

Text: Wed. This is the place – but what a blow when we heard ‘no’ – but we still have hopes. Will move on about to-morrow to Chicago. Have a good time Sat. [?] Much love Claire

PS I am blurring out all the receiver names. Obviously in this case, with a postcard from 1941, the receivers are probably long gone, but I will be posting more recently found ones.
