3 more postcards I picked up on my east coast trip.

#1 has a great message on it and worth the read... someone got a job and gained some weight and wanted to tell about it.
(and I always like the panama-pacific expo stamp)

#2's cancel is from Ely, Nevada. Not much going on there now with a population of 3K. But in the 1900s there was some cooper mining and a pony express stop (according to Wikipedia)

#3 Looks like it was not produced in the U.S.


I welcome your comments and insights!
About the postcards and stamps and cancels.

Funny we now send such messages in split seconds over text... no one sends Easter Cards anymore. Very cool find.

It seems that Mary St Peter is not the only person to spell the state's name as Navada.
