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?
This week's postcard place is the Marent Trestle in Missoula, Montana:
The text reads: "Marent Trestle, N.P. Ry., Missoula, Mont., 226 Feet High".
Why might the Marent Trestle in Missoula, Montana have been important to Grandma Leola?
