Rose Court NYWF postcard, July 17, 1939

Because it's good to remember people actually went to the fair...

"Mrs. Helen Roman (possibly Rowan)
2305 Fullerton Av.

(postmark: Jul 17 12-M 1939, Flushing N.Y.)

"Hello Helen
Sure am having a good time. wish all you girls were with me. It sure is pretty here and every body is so friendly. from (?)


Google Maps shows a building that was probably there in 1939. It's close to I-94; I could hop on I-94, which is also close to me at the moment, and see Helen Roman/Rowan's old house in person in a little over four hours. I'm not going to do that tho...

  1. It WOULD be a fun day-road trip. Although I'm with you, I'd need to find a couple other reasons to actually DO it.
