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.
I only have one photograph of my 3x’s great grandmother – Ann Frances Green Gardiner. Recently a cousin came across an old photo album of her mother’s that had been tucked in a closet for years. To my absolute delight there was a photo of Ann of her taken in June of 1872, when she was 45 years old. What a treasure – I love that after all these years heirlooms keep surfacing.
