Sepia Saturday #231 ~ For the Flag and You




vetrans, USA

I wish I knew the story behind this postcard, but unfortunately I only have this photocopy  and at the time I neglected to scan the back of it. I'm not sure where this card is today.  It was a keepsake from a member of my grandmother's Barrett/Cox family.  I thought it would be fitting for this week's theme as we remember D Day.

  9. A perfect choice for the day! Perhaps there was nothing more than an address on the back. Still, it might have been interesting to see where the card had been sent originally? Oh well.

  13. Hey, I wonder if that comment could be read if you either turned the card upside down or read it in a mirror -- or reversed the photo in a photo editing program. It's too bad you can't find the original. It's a fine postcard and works well for D-Day.
