I love these particular postcards because of the time period they represent. I actually purchased these from an antique shop. They capture places and events beautifully. The cards are brilliant, but the scans are grainy.

Yosemite National Park, California
At the time the oldest and largest giant sequoias in Mariposa Grove.
It's like a scene from a movie, but actually part of our history.
It has a one cent stamp
The postmark is faint, but from what I can tell it was in the 30's.
Stamps are from Burma
"So I made it to Burma. Very good stop indeed. There are many things to see and the tourists are few in number. I have just come back from up country, i.e. Mandalay and Pogan, which is said to be a kind of second Sagkor (?). It was great! Flying to Bangkok tomorrow. Hope to go to Laos too."
Isn't it cool to look back at the writing and the English prior to computers and social media?

Due to Labor Day festivities here in the states I won't be posting on Monday, but I will be back
Tuesday for a wonderful, surprise giveaway. Hint, Hint: want to be a Rockstar?
I have a challenge for myself. Ruth and I are going antiquing to see what we can find for 5 dollars or less. We are putting a cap on our spending just to see what we can find that works into our paper art. Wish us Luck.
