What are the chances of you receiving a postcard from 1920 in your mailbox? Very slim, you say? Well one woman from the US has quite a story to tell!
Brittany Keech of Belding, Michigan was shocked and surprised upon noticing a Halloween postcard upon opening her mailbox. The Halloween-themed postcard was postmarked October 29, 1920. It also had a green 1-centavo George Washington stamp.
“Witch would you rather be?” The 1920 Halloween postcard that took a long time to deliver.
As seen on the message, the postcard was for a certain Mrs. Roy McQueen who used to live in Belding.
According to Brittany, she found the card as she was sorting out bills and junk mail in her mailbox. Now she’s taking it upon herself to find the living relatives of the recipient so she can give the card to them. If not, she plans to donate the card to a local museum.
The 30-year-old Belding resident shared:
“When I first saw it, I thought, ‘This is old.’ I was shocked. Why is this here all of the sudden? “I would love to be able to get it to a relative who is alive.”
Part of the message, which was was written in cursive, read:
“Hope this will find you all well. We are quite well but mother has awful lame knees. It is awful cold here. I just finished my history lesson and am going to bed pretty soon. My father is shaving and mother is telling me your address.”
The signature is a bit hard to read but possibly says the card was from a “Flossie Burgess.”
In a NewYorkTimes article, we learn that a 1920 census says a certain Roy McQueen used to live in Brittany’s vcurrent address. He was an agricultural manager who was married to Nora McQueen. They had two children together.
