Livingstone’s Birthplace (Postcard) — Photo 33 — Project 365
Still with the Family History theme, I also came across this postcard sent to my 2nd Great-Grandfather by his sister. It speaks to a different era, when people had more connections to the home country and so would go for months to visit the country and family. The note on the back (“This is a real photograph”) speaks to the state of the art of photography — still complicated and expensive. The other thing that amazes me is how simple the address is. All in all, it’s an interesting peak into the past.
