A Belated Thanksgiving Postcard
November 27, 2017 12:55pm CST
I found this old Thanksgiving postcard in a box of postcards I have and even though Thanksgiving has been and gone for this year I thought I’d share it with you. I’m not sure how old this card is, possibly 1940s, but without all the technological frills of modern society now it definitely portrays simpler times. As an indication of its age, the back it states that to send the card postage was 1 cent domestic and 2 cents foreign. I love the way postcards were sent on all sorts of occasions in the past and that many have survived over the years. So, here it is, my belated Thanksgiving message to you all.

@valmnz Here's an idea: It doesn't mention an average wage, though. I know in the 60s minimum wage was $1/hr for full-time and 85 cents for students and part-time.
