Amanuensis Monday - 1912 Postcard to Mrs. Hazel Piggott

Here is yet another postcard from the collection of grandma Hazel's ephemera.

This postcard is stamped Apr 4, 1912 and is addressed to Mrs. Hazel Piggott.

       Dear Sis-
                  What are
you going to do Easter
hope you have a nice
time. How's your old man.
Mine's fine & dandy.
had a letter from
Roie, they are all well.
with love from Iva.x

Iva makes sure to write across the top "ans soon".

Amanuensis Monday is an ongoing series created by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.


  1. What a beautiful postcard! They don't make them like that anymore do they?

  2. Vintage post cards are my favorites and I am always on the outlook for more. I especially enjoyed her "old man" comment. Some things don't change, do they ;-D

  3. Sweet card- makes me sad to see all these vintage cards and realize that my descendants are not going to have anything like that from my time- not from my parents, or myself, or my children. I need to start writing, either letters or cards- SOON!
