Miami Baseball Stadium, c. 1950

I never saw a baseball game here, but I did attend a few concerts here during the 1970’s.  The most memorable was Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Loggins & Chick Corea and the Return to Forever Band.

… feeling very old at the moment!

Pan Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco, 1915 – Indiana State Building


Mabel and I came out to the Fair for this.  M. Roosevelt is here – big crowd but not unusual.  I am not even crossing the street to see him! Would rather write some Postcards to my friends.  This ___ a building is no credit to the State, cheap looking – English architecture – supposed to cost near 75,000.00 — a house!!   Democratic management.  I am very well.  May be home soon — Your Aunt Anna.

Dear Friend.  Rec’d your ever welcome letters and very glad to hear from you.  We are all well and hope you are the same.  They are expecting a big time here next week when the Shriners get here.  The city is being decorated up beautiful with flags.  Dinner time so must close.  Don’t answer till you hear from me again.

1912 – Happy Birthday Wishes For You or Morton Salt’s “When It Rains it Pours”

This card is canceled on the front, but its kind of hard to read the exact date (June 5, XXXX).  There is no message on the other side, and was another card mailed to Bertha Dicus.  Based on the other cards that were with this one, I’m saying early 1900’s (plus the card itself is dated 1912 in the lower left corner).

Sharing this with you all because it reminds me of Spring Showers!  Which we have had enough of over the last few weeks.  The graphic also reminds me of the Morton Salt Girl – When it Rains it Pours!
