Friendship Friday is here again and today I am sharing some of my vintage Thanksgiving postcards. They are all from the early 1900s and picture fat Turkeys and have a feeling of quiet times with family. Today it seems Thanksgiving is all about football and hurry off to shop at the stores.
I think I would rather sit back and have a nice dinner and visit with my family. I can shop another day.
Enjoy a peek into the past with my vintage postcards. They are up for sale on eBay along with a few others.

THURSDAY POSTCARD TRAVELS Piccadilly Circle London England

Today for Thursday Postcard Travels I am sharing another vintage postcard of London England. This one is of Piccadilly Circus which is a busy center of traffic at the intersection of Regent street, whence the wide Shaftesbury Avenue leads to the northeast.

The triangle in the center of the circus is occupied by a memorial fountain to Lord Shaftesbury, which was unveiled in 1893. It is adorned with eight plaques of scenes from the philanthropists life.

Thanks for visiting Thursdays Postcard Travels. Grace

SEPIA SATURDAY #149 10/27/12 Vintage 1900s Postcard Apostle Island Lake Superior

Saturday and time for Sepia Saturday. I am sharing this great vintage postcard of Drill Point Apostle Island on Lake Superior. Apostle Island is in Wisconsin. This postcard is from the early 1900s.

Sender has written on the back in pencil and is for Mrs Alva Todd. There is no stamp on postcard. Fun to peak into others past with these old post cards but they can be hard to read at times.
Check out what others are sharing at Sepia Saturday of UK.
The post card must of been delivered since there is no address or post mark. By reading card I can tell you that Mrs Alva Todd is also known as coz Carrie.
The writer tells us that she has not written lately since she has been reading novels all her time and feels naughty but is nice to do.
Hard to make out but looks like some ones grand dad cut his suspenders and went straight up. Not sure what that means. She asks about the children and Carries old man.
To bad that we do not know who these people are and that is was separated from their family treasures.
Clues are the name Alva Todd and first name Carrie. With a little work on ancestry may be able to find a relative.

Hope that you are enjoying this vintage treasure I am sharing today.This link will take you to Wisconsin Historical information on Apsotle Island.  Grace
