Aloha Fold-Out Postcard

 

This vintage Hawaii post card set made by Curt Teich tells quite a story…

In 1944, a U.S. military Private with rather illegible nomenclature sent this to Ms. Sara Gutshall in Maytown, PA.

Notice there’s no postal address needed – the mail carrier knew where to go with it!

After Pearl Harbor, individuals serving over in the Pacific theater would send these decorative postcards to their ladies at home. It’s a beautiful relic of the 1940s and takes you way back to a very different age.
