Picked a number of postcard this evening. All are addressed to Miss Lydia Johnson of Ravenna Ontario, and are dated between 1907 and 1920.
Since I know some of you folks collect this sort of treasure, I thought I'd share some.
Many are beautiful, some funny, some poignant.
Rowardennan, Loch Lomond
Postmarked December 8, 1914 at Largs Ayrshire
Moonlight over the Florida Coast
Postmarked November 26, 1912 with a nice flag cancel at Gainseville Florida
Hotel Tours, rooms from a dollar a day. Bit of a time capsule.
Postmarked on August 5, 1914 at New Providence Iowa. New Providence is at tiny town with a population of 228 (2010 census) and the scene of the 'Water Tower Disaster' in 2000 where a crane building the town's new water tower collapsed and killed a worker. The footage appeared on the tv show 'Destroyed in Seconds'. Nice Panama-Pacific Balboa stamp though.
Cowboy's Kitchen, the chuck wagon, Western Canada
Postmarked Milestone Saskatchewan on June 4, 1917. King George V war tax stamp.
Pretty yet un-named sepia toned shot of river scene.
Postmarked Newmarket Ontario (about 10 km from my place) on November 29, 1909.
Bucolic scene of Ranch Cattle coming up ravine.
I'm afraid the back of this one defies description.
