The note on this 1934 postcard from Canada to the U.S. reads:

"Am having a fine time. Haven't seen any long hotdogs yet. Will see you soon."

I wonder if she eventually found any!





An can you believe the receiver, Miss Myrtle lives on Myrtle Avenue!

This is why we'll never adopt the metric system. Who wants a meter-long? Requires a whole squirt bottle of mustard, a quart of relish, and 3 ground-up onions plus a jumbo roll of paper towels. And each bun costs $7.

Sorry to burst the bubble of humor here, but the recipient of the postcard was a Miss Myrtle Barnmaker (not Bunmaker).

According to her obituary, her date of birth was June 14, 1925, making her about 9 years old at the time the postcard was sent. The senders of the postcard, Lillian and Russell, were more than likely her brother and sister.
