Vintage & Collectible Illinois Postcards

United States Post Office

Watseka, Illinois

Iroquois County


This linen postcard that features the United States Post Office at Watseka, Illinois, which is in Iroquois County.

Signed "Gladys & Hick," it was postmarked on September 5, 1941 in Crescent City, Illinois. It was mailed to Mr. & Mrs. John ALBAN of New Freedom, York County, Pennsylvania.

The message is in very faint pencil, so I can't scan it for you, but it announces that Gladys & Hick have arrived (presumably at Watseka, or Crescent City) and that they're very sorry that the ALBAN family is not there, too. They wrote that "Dudley was up he doesn't look a day older. Will see Wallace this eve."

The card was published by the Curteich Company of Chicago, as indicated by the printed "Genuine Curteich-Chicago 'C. T. American Art' Post Card (Reg. U. S. Pat. Off.)."
