First M.E. Church, Duluth, Minnesota

First Methodist Church, DuluthWhile extremely difficult to read, the bottom of this postcard reveals this to be the First M.E. Church in Duluth, Minnesota. Ever wonder what an “M.E.” church was? The letters stand for Methodist Episcopal, and denotes the first iteration of what would come to be called simply, the Methodist Church. The card is postally unused, but has this message on the back:

Mr. Blakesley is in Vancouver, British Columbia. You bet it’s getting cold here. It snowed about four inches last night. I was to a Halloween party last night. Had a pretty good time.
