Albert Lea, Minn. – 1934


Albert Lea, Minn.  1A3031.  Made by Curt Teich & Co., Chicago, U.S.A.

Post marked Albert Lea, Minn. Jul 27, 1934.   Addressed to Mrs. Phebie Koontz, 1346½ West Broad St., Columbus, Ohio.

“July 27, 1934    Dear Aunt,  Well here I am and found everyone getting along nicely.   Olive [Olive Smith Sweet, Alta’s sister] seems to feel real good, we hope to take a fishing trip up in the northern part of the state next month.  Hope you are all right.  Love.  Alta [Alta Smith, daughter of Harriett Honora (Hattie) Koontz Smith, Phebie’s sister in law].”

I am not sure why this post card was part of Grandpa’s collection since it was addressed to Grandma’s mother, but it has a number of important pieces of information.  First the spelling of Great Grandma Koontz’ first name — there is no o in her spelling of Phebie.  And, the address confirmation of where she was living in 1934.
