I remember picking up postcards on my adventures for souvenirs. In fact I have a shoebox full of postcards from places like Rapid City, Washington D.C., various places in Spain, and any zoo or tourist attraction that I visited as a child. None of mine have any writing either.
So curiosity strikes this genealogist again. What significance did the places on these postcards have for Grandma Leola?
The first postcard place is Susanville, California:
"Looking east on Main St." Susanville, Calif. J.H. Eastman #B-359-BGrandma Leola and her family lived in the Bell Gardens, California area during the 1940s. Bell Gardens is about 570 miles from Susanville, roughly a 10 hour drive.
What significance might Susanville, California have in Leola's life?
