Did you know that in 1922 you could send a postcard to a loved one in another state with a One Cent stamp? See the postcard above. My Grandpa John Volkema lived in Doon, Iowa at the time. You didn’t even have to have a street address either. In case you can’t read it: It’s a postcard to my Grandfather, John Volkema, from his brother Henry in Denver Colorado, postmarked July 11, 2:30 p.m., 1922. It reads, “Dear bro. John- Congratulations on your birthday. May the Lord grant you many more. Give Nancy my best regards. With love from your brother Henry.” (Nancy was his first wife) Just amazing what you find when you start searching.
