Postmarked 102 Years Ago Today

As I was looking through my Thanksgiving antique postcards to find one to share with you, I spotted this young man carving a pumpkin.  Thought this was perfect to transition from Halloween that we celebrated earlier this week into this month's season of giving thanks.

Upon closer examination, I noticed that the card was postmarked from Pottstown, PA on November 5, 1909 -- 102 years ago.  Perfect for a posting on November 5, 2011.

I love old post cards, photos and letters. I have boxes of old family photos that I need to go through and catalog and scan on to my computer. Do you know if the light from scanning will harm the old photos?

My father was born in 1909 and my mother was born in 1911. they are both gone now but my mother did live until she was 97 years old.

My mother had me when she was 40, so it is almost like a generation was skipped. It is so unreal to think that my grandparents lived during the Victorian era.

My grandmother was one of the first Doctors in Washington state! I posted about this... is is archived under "Family".
