Penny Post Cards

You many not remember, but once upon a time you could go to the Post Office and buy and and mail a post card for a penny! (Maybe that's why they called them penny post cards?) Or, you could find them in stores for a little more. Of course you did get a picture on one side.

Here's a link I found that features pictures of old cards. You can click through the states and find pages for particular areas. This is the link to Nemaha County. There's only one for Seneca. It's the old water works that you've probably seen in black & white, but this one is in full color!

If you'd like to contribute a picture, there's a link on the page that'll give you the instructions.
