Last month, my good friends Joe and Lisa gave me a small stack of vintage postcards for my birthday.

I’m going to post images of the fronts and backs of each postcard here, along with a transcription—or at least as accurate a transcription as I can come up with—of what’s written on each card.

Oh, and if anyone reading these posts has a different interpretation of what’s written, please feel free to post what you think they say in the comments section.

Until then, enjoy!
