Postcard Friendship Friday

This large piece of art is located on a landing on one of the stairwells in the Minnesota History Center in downtown St. Paul where we went to see a special exhibit about the Depression and WWII as it affected Minnesotan. I have seen the exact same image you see in the photo on postcards, which, incidentally are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Guess I'll have to start going to antique shops again. Next week I'll show you some photos I took while going through the outstanding "The Greatest Generation" Exhibit at the History Center Stay tuned!!

  3. Nice but I like the jam and jelly. That would be something I could taste.

  4. I wonder if it was designed to be used eventually as a postcard, or did the postcard come as an afterthought. Superb!

    Wow this is so cool !
    Happy PFF to you.
    Thanks for sharing this today.
    It is getting hard to find state postcards here in the area of Texas I live in.
    I guess it's like that every where.
    Have a fabulous weekend.
    Happy Trails

  17. How VERY wonderful!

    I'm sorry I am coming by so late for Postcard Friendship Friday. My parents were involved in a roll-over accident on the freeway last Monday. Miraculously both of my dear parents survived and are recovering, leaving little time for blogging. I had a few minutes just now, though, so here I am.

    Happy PFF!
