gslaten- I couldn't find much on the Bobinskas. Polish is a tough language to research for someone not familiar with all the little accent marks and alternate spellings. For example- Parasgka can also come up as Paraiska.

I had better luck with Katz and Rosenbaum. They were part of a loose association that catered to the financial and travel needs of eastern european immigrants coming to America. In addition to steamship ticket sales Rosenbaum ran private banking services from 1888 to 1933. The building at south third is now a restaurant and bears a historical plaque identifying it as "the Rosenbaum Bank Building".

The digital library at Temple.edu has a scanned collection of Rosenbaums ledgers and a newspaper ad for his services with the image of a liner on it.

I was able to find some information on Leonora Jackson. From Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leono...ackson_McKim

Leonora Jackson McKim (born Leonora Jackson, February 20, 1879 in Boston, Massachusetts, United States;[1] died January 7, 1969 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States) was one of the first American women to achieve international acclaim as a concert violinist,[2] and was credited for improving the perception of American artists in Europe: "'Leonora Jackson was the first American violinist whom European opinions recognized to equal any of its great artists and who conquered all prejudice as to the supposed inferiority of American talent."[3]



The building the Lyceum Hall was part of still stands. See http://www.squeezeboxcity.com/lyceum-building/



Kansas City, Pittsburg, and Gulf Railroad Co., Kansas City Southern Railroad Co., Missouri Republican Club, Lyceum Hall, Orient Hotel, Delmar Hotel

The asymmetrical ornate structure on 9th Street features Chicagoan stylistic elements in its steel-frame design. Commissioned by the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Trust, the building served as ticket office for the Kansas City, Pittsburg, and Gulf Railroad Company. Later known as the Kansas City Southern Railroad Co., the rail line ran from Kansas City, Mo., to Port Arthur, Texas. The line further evolved into a direct route to the Gulf of Mexico, promoting and enabling commerce in foreign markets.

The Missouri Republican Club took up residence in the building in 1901. Also within the building prevailed the majestic Lyceum Hall—home of many Kansas City elite social events and glamorous balls—and even a horse show and auction in 1896.

Over the course of the next 100 years, the building would take shape as the Orient Hotel, and later, the Delmar Hotel.

Came across this today. Does anyone know what the Universal Stamp Alliance was? I can find nothing about it or Dr. Tedesche online.

On the other hand, W.C. Stone, the addressee on the card was a founding member of the American Philatelic Association, the forerunner of the APS. He was inducted into the APS Hall of Fame in 1947. See https://classic.stamps.org/HOF-1946 and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Carlos_Stone

The message on this postcard from Lundy amuses me: "Almost having a lovely time!"

(The picture side is a photo of a couple of puffins.)
