The Scottish town of Dumfries wishes you good luck, as do I. The postcard was mailed from Edinburgh to Fort Worth, Texas in 1949.
This postcard, mailed in 1909, shows just how a couple would have dressed for an automobile trip in the earliest years of motoring. I’ve always been a huge car and motorcycle enthusiast, and it’s driving me crazy that I can’t identify the make of this particular vehicle. It seems to have a front mounted v-twin engine, and the air-cooled power-plant appears to have a small fan to assist cooling. The fan makes gives this auto a distinctive look, but I’ve not found a picture of a similar design. Can anyone identify this?
This embossed postcard was mailed in 1908, and that’s all I’m going to say about this one. Seriously.
Greetings from Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes. The large letter postcard was mailed from Saint Paul in 1943.
