My latest auction acquisition, from my favorite picker,  is a series of old postcards to residents of Frederick County, Maryland. Some of the cards are from prominent families and one recipient can even be traced back to the founding fathers of Frederick, Maryland. Please note I am not related to any of the senders nor recipients. I am only posting to hope that others will enjoy as much as I do.
