Postcards from the past - It was a lot easier to get mail around the country in 1938. This card was simply addressed to Miss Alice Garner, Blue River, Wisconsin. The card was postmarked in Hinsdale at 8 a.m. July 25. The message was "a card a day while they last will be my motto temporarily. I found out the Zephyr fare to P. du C. (Prairie du Chien, Wis.) is $4.54 one way so guess that'll be OK. Please notice familiar "Walgreens" on the corner. Sincerely, Dick.' (Hinsdale Historical Society photo)
