A Happy New Year – 1911


A Happy New Year.  Made in Germany.

Post marked Detroit, Mich.  Dec 29, 1911.  Addressed to Mr. Lee Weaver, 94 Tireman, City.

“Dec 29, 1911   Card received.  Pleasant surprise.  Eikman.”

I have no idea whom Eikman was.  Interesting addressing.  In the early 20th century, mail within the city where it was being posted only required the work “City” and the post office knew it was local.

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.
