One of the things that I love most about this postcard is the fact that it is simply addressed to "Mr. Edward Braun, Barstow, California". It just makes me imagine the postmaster riding into the dusty pueblo that was Barstow at the turn of the century and just standing in the middle of town hollering, "Hey, anybody seen Ed?...I got a letter for him." Then some railroad worker would wander past and go, "Oh, you're looking for Ed? Yeah, he's down at the market buying some Moxie soda, want me to take that postal card to him friend?"
I better stop myself before I write an entire screenplay about life in Barstow. Anyway, happy St. Paddy's day everyone...
|Oh yeah...and here's a picture of Ed in |
