A festival of Postcards - Locomotion
I've been away for a while, but here I am!
Postcards always fascinated me, even before my genealogy passion started.
I'm so happy I have some postcards from my ggrandfather, who was an officer on board and sailed in the Mediterranean sea at the beginning of the century, using postcards to keep in contact with the family at home in Italy.
I also have another ggrandfather who travelled at sea in the same period, but no postcards survived from this branch of the family.
What I post today is not from my ggrandfather, but from his son, grandpa Aldo, who went to the US in the '20 just to visit and come back!
This is what he sent home to his father, on Dec 4th, 1925.
It arrived in Genova, Italy on Dec 13th, 1925.
