A few more from my recent purchase.
These 4 cards are all addressed to the same woman, Mary E. Rineer of West Nanticoke, Pennsylvania.
I couldn't find much on-line about her, but found some information below.
My favorite card is the Yellowstone card of the petrified tree that, as the card reads, "has to be protected by the unthinking souvenir collectors".

Enjoy! And please share your observations and interests....

Nice postcards! I live in Canton and have never heard of the Stone Bridge. A trip to West Lawn Cemetary is in my future. I'll post a pic if it's still there.

I thought a postcard for a Cemetery was unique.
Must be quite the spot! Don't stay long ;-)

'
Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn shows-up on postcards from back in the day, sometimes on RPPCs ... the nice gate helps.

Similarly, the cemetery-to-the-stars shows-up on cards, more often on linens, if memory serves.

Cheers,
