1918 Postcard North East, Pennsylvania

Recently I rescued 28 vintage orphaned postcards from antique shops. They range in date from 1900 to 1918. 27 are from United States and 1 is from Ontario Canada. 

I have scanned and added 6 of these postcards to Lost Faces and will be adding the rest of these wonderful cards over the next month. I hope descendants will see these postcards and recognize an ancestor.  

Perhaps you will find an ancestor or two!

I love this! My mother and her maternal ancestors vacationed there for decades - surnames include Copeland, Hunter, Lysle. I look forward to seeing what you have to share!

I love old postcards! I have a small collection myself. I bought them to scan and use in papercrafts but never thought to share them for others to find ancestors, great idea!
