Postmarked 1913. A cozy looking place.
Hospitals seem a peculiar and dreary subject for postcards. But back in the day — before routine outpatient procedures and hospitals speedily freeing up beds — time in hospital (as patient or visitor) regularly spanned several days or longer, so penning a brief note to update absent friends or loved ones was probably not so odd. And what better way to do it than with one of the colored cards conveniently available at the hospital!
Postmarked 1945. The note starts out: “Having a swell time.” Love those roadsters!
About 1948. Yikes — looks more like a prison!
About 1910. Regal digs. Notice horse and buggy to bottom left.
Postmarked 1935. Street car or bus passing by.
