This week's postcard is among others in the folder pictured at top, with a postmark barely detectable as sometime in the 1940s. I'll feature some of the others in later Wednesday posts. For this one I'm including the shot of the cover, mainly because of the unique cost of postage (and I wonder what happened to the original stamp)....
If you purchase one of the half pennies below, and buy the appropriate stamps, plus have use of a time machine - or maybe a magic aeroplane -, then you will be able to go back and mail the Puget Sound postcard folder per the requirements of the time. Such a deal.
This 1773 Virginia half penny is for sale in a private auction at ebay (as of blog publication current bid is at $79.99).
This 1806 Draped 1/2 cent PCGS VF30 (those codes mean something to somebody) is for sale at ebay for $260.00 if you use the Buy It Now option.
Seattle aerial view today.
For a truly spectacular aerial view of Seattle check out this very cool post from the Seattle Daily Photo blog...................
Looking at Me Looking at You. It is so worth the click!
I found those two modern shots of Seattle above when I Googled "Seattle aerial shots." But life is a circus these days, I tell ya, and the following also showed up in the same search.....
This remarkable shot is from the Seattle Aerial Arts Nude Calendar Project. For more information about the calendar and the project click here.
And so, our short but memorable flight over The Emerald City has come to an end. Please collect any 1/2 cent coins that may have fallen between your seats as you never know when you'll need them in another time machine.
