These postcards are from the turn of the century (1900). It was apparently all the rage to make your photographs into postcards and send them to people.

This one is also to my great aunt in Waterloo, Iowa.

November 1914

The beginning of the postcard is not legible.

…. They told me you have my old room and some of my left overs no doubt. Well, be good to them. How is your mother? There have been some Sunday afternoons I have thought I must run in.
Love to all, Clara

I’m pretty sure, Clara was her first cousin.

Dear friend
Your card was received glad to hear from you and that you are well. I was away when your card came. Wel we seriously had a good time when you was here. Would be so glad to see you next summer if we all live. Glad you like your school. We have had such nice and lovely weather this fall but this morning it was raining and has rained all day but looks like clearing up this evening. I was to see your sister yesterday. They like their new place real well. It doesn’t seem right to…. the rest is not legible.

My great aunt is in the middle back. Don’t know who the others are. It is addressed to my great aunt in Mt Ayr, Iowa. The date is 6/17/09 and it says:

Don’t forget that letter and be careful.

London

This superb building is that in which Parliament is housed. On the right, the Victoria Tower, and on the left, Big Ben.

August 1956

Hi you lucky people. Having a wonderful time. Happy to get all the letters which were here on our arrival. London is sunny and warm. Shows, TV, etc. are very good. All these tall buildings are too much for local yokels like me. Will sail the night of the 23rd, can hardly wait – we need the rest. Will write more later.

Love and stuff, the Hewitts
