Miss Lillian's Postcards: Vintage Tweets - A Short Greeting from Nora

Postcard 31

Sender: Nora
Addressee: Miss Lillian Maguire, 1902 "G" Terry Ave, Seattle, Washington
Postmark: St Charles MO
Date: June 15, 1908
Image: St. Charles Military College, St. Charles, Mo.

This postal from St Charles MO features buildings at St Charles Military College, which was founded in 1832 and was still around in 1914. It is possible that it was absorbed by and became St Charles High School, but only if St Charles Military College and St Charles Military Academy were the same institution. You can figure out only so much via the Internet.

Dear Lillian,
Received your
letter and Postal 
Everything is
lovely in St. Chas.
Hoping you are
feeling fine and
dandy. Best Wishes
From Nora

This postal is from Lillian's friend Nora, from whom she has received other postcards, and who resides in St. Charles, MO. She is very general in her remarks. Mainly this is just a "touching base" sort of message. The item of note is her use of the slang term "OK".

Blouse Fashion from 1907

I love the detail on this blouse!
