I’m counting down to the Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show on April 1st at the Lansing Center. Here’s a previous purchase.

This is Main Street in Rockford, Michigan and the message is written by Mrs. Judson M. Spore (nee Clara Dutton) to Mrs. A. Foster in Harleyburg, Ontario (according to the other side). Mrs. Spore’s husband was the Postmaster and she neatly points out the Post Office on the photo. I am not related to either woman (to the best of my knowledge) but the photo is such a great shot of a city my family has lived in for generations. I used to walk by these buildings almost daily when I lived in town.

Happy hunting,

Jessica
