While going through some old postcards, this one jumped out.

Postmarked April 17th, 1924, Tampa Florida.

"When an orange cost less than a cent a piece".

I have seen a few, but own none. This is a great example. Plus I love the notation on the price of oranges.

Happy belated birthday smauggie,

This card cancelled Cass Lake, Minn. Aug. 6, 1952.

"How's this for a big fish tale."

"The fish take the initiative here!"
