I’ll take a blackeye any day … -1912


I’ll take a blackeye any day to kiss the girl I love. No 157 Entering Stationers Hall,  London

Post marked Saginaw West Side, Mich.  Aug 5, 1912.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“8-3-12  Friend Lee,  Having a fine time.  Rather cold here.  Caught a bad cold coming.  Neuralgia for two days.  Expect to see Ethel by Thursday.  Don’t work too hard.  F.”

More controversy?  Is this Florence O? Is this Florence K?  Cannot tell.  The handwriting does not look like Grandma’s later penmanship.   But the salutation of Friend is her usual.  And Grandma did have a sister Ethel.   Anyway, whichever one, she was raising the bar of expectation for Grandpa.


About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
