COLLECTION #247: Vintage Minnesota Postcards
This collection consists of postcards from my own family. Most of them were sent to my Grandma Ward (who was from Owatonna, Minnesota) from her family and friends left behind, when she married and moved to Oregon, then Idaho. They are all from the years 1910-1914 or so. I also have quite a number of real photo postcards from the same family, same era, but I'm only featuring the commercial, location postcards today.
The most fun thing about these postcards, is the handwritten messages on the back. I wish I could post them all here, but I don't think they would be very interesting to most of you. But I'm including a couple of them here.
