the way to America

the way to America

A postcard from 1909 showing the then-common habit of writing notes on the front of cards — one of the inspirations for this site. My great-great Aunt Millie was a missionary in Korea. Her note reads,

The way to America.
Expect to go out here next
mid morning to “see a
missionary off.”

(We had always intended to publish this card, so I’m posting it now, backdated, to head up the archive. —Dave in 2010)
