My husband's mother received this from a woman that Ray called Aunt Katie but who was not actually his aunt. She was related some way, though, and I know Ray spent some time with her. I do know, also, that Myles who is mentioned in the message was her husband and a policeman in Peoria. They had a daughter that was about Ray's age who was like a cousin to him. This, too, is a linen card. Many of them were back then, I surmise. So, Happy PFF!! And thanks for hosting, Beth, at http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/ (Click to enlarge)

Postcard Friendship Friday
I am surprised to find that I have more postcards than I realized. This one turned up in a box with other pictures and it is from the Chicago World's Fair which, I think, opened in 1933 although this card was mailed in 1934. Regardless, a long, long time ago. I am particularly taken with the way the fairgoers are dressed--quite a bit different than what people wear in a like situation today! I can remember dressing up a bit to go shopping or to the dentist or doctor. We are truly laid back in this day and age - I guess the term is "casual". It must have been a warm day judging from the fact that some of the men are carrying their suitcoats.
