Free Postage?

Image
Here's a question: If one goes to the post office to mail a postcard of a post office is the postage free? Maybe it should be. It's free publicity for the postal system. Plus the postage was only 1¢ back then. Can you image an answer?
I couldn't find anything to match the Sepia Saturday prompt this week. The closest thing to those old books in the prompt photo, in my postcard collection, is this postcard of a post office in Newburyport. A post office after all deals with volumes of paper, right?  Alice's correspondence to Lois of Orange, Massachusetts is in the neatest of script and mailed in the autumn of 1938. There was a major hurricane that swept through New England that September and this is what she may have been referring to. I have transposed her words for you so you all won't strain your necks looking sideways to read it.

A Hard Run

A Hard Run

This week's Thursday Challenge is "hard." Today is the 100th day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon. April 15, 2013 was a hard day here in Boston. Things will get easier as victims heal.
We will never forget.

Damsels Doing Damage

Image
Well I found a photo that features women in armor. Seems that these women of the former Radcliffe College in Cambridge, Massachusetts were in a starring role in some medieval campus production in 1955.

Radcliffe was a women's "Harvard" before Harvard University went coed in the 1970's and took control of the Radcliffe campus.

The women having a little tussle aren't in full armor but atleast they have protective helmets. The gentleman running the camera is keeping a good distance which I'm sure is intentional. Are they fighting to protect their damsels in distress' virtue?
