The Beginnings of a Postcard Collection
I have the beginnings of my African postcard collection.
While on vacation in May, I kept my eye out for them at antique stores and used book stores. I came home with 12 and they are all from either Egypt or Algeria.
I didn’t buy every single one I found, just the ones that I felt were affordable ($2 or less) and were very interesting.
Only one of the 12 was actually mailed and is dated April 1950. It says, “We don’t even know where we are, but we’re having a darn good Easter vacation!”
