Postcard Friday-#1

What better way to start a new meme, "Postcard Friday", than with the city in which I live. These postcards depict only part of this city so if you want to know and see more, visit Visual St. Paul daily! For more bloggers who are interested in vintage postcards, click here.

"In the morning the city
Spreads its wings
Making a song
In stone that sings.

In the evening the city
Goes to bed
Hanging lights
About its head."

---Langston Hughes
