Postcard Friendship Friday

In pictures that were in my husband's mom's things, there are a lot of ones similar to these two. I cannot pick out anyone in any of the pictures and they are all on the old postcard backs sans writing. This one does have a flag on it so thought that would be appropriate for the upcoming flag day. And a Happy Birthday goes out to Beth on her birthday - how sweet that she would think people flew the flag for her day. Why would a little girl not think that?
There are other pictures with these vehicles featured - and I have no idea what they are. Some of the photos look like they could be army camps but I am wondering if this could have anything to do with the CCC which I vaguely remember hearing about. I think it put men to work after the depression building roads, etc., all over the country where they lived in camps. Anyone have any ideas? I will post more of the photos at a later date.

  1. I think he cars look too old for the CCC. If you can figure out the location, a historical society could probably help.

  2. What fun, a mystery to solve. Definitely check in with the historical society, even if you're not sure of the location yet. They might have resources and contacts with experts who might help ID the place.

  5. I'm afraid I can't be of any help either. The top picture looks as though it could be a sea front, or waterfront of some sort. There must be someone who could help.

  7. Another reminder to mark all pictures on the back with who, when and what as appropriate!

  8. If you find a postcard with wild mammal(s), and it might be available for swap with me, please let me know.

  9. I'm also of the thought that a Historical Society could be of use here.

    Love the pictures - those old trucks are amazing!

    Happy PFF - a little late.

  10. Thank you so much for the birthday greeting!!! And for this wonderful set of postcards--they are truly magnificent. I'm sure your local historical preservation group if you have one, would be VERY interested in finding the background for these!

    Happy PFF!
