Happy PFF Friday - Great Aunt Tillie, 1950's

I wonder if the post office had much trouble locating the intended recipient of this postal card - with just a first initial, last name, and city of residence.

This Postal Card was sent in the 1950's from my great aunt Aggie to her sister, my great aunt Tillie. "Dean" was getting married, and Aunt Aggie sounded a little insulted that everyone (except Aunt Tillie) bought their gifts without consulting her!

Both of these great aunts have been gone for years, but I have vivid memories of their close sisterly bonds, as well as their wonderful personalities. They would stand for hours, nose to nose, talking about anything and everything. They were delightful.


  1. Wow! It really got delivered with that address?

  2. Clytie, I'm sure they didn't have any trouble! They knew your Auntie who lived down the hill and took the card right over to her! :)

  3. Clytie, I just read your profile and I consider myself very lucky to live in New York City on the Atlantic Ocean for my entire life! :)

  4. I love the patina coloring on those images!

  5. How sweet...memories of relatives with spunk! Wonderful keepsake ;-)
