March 5: The Museum in Washington, DC will open today. Due to weather, the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA is closed.
The postcard was mailed in July, 1910 by Rose of Charleston, West Virginia to her friend Emma in Homestead, Pennsylvania - Dear Old Girlie, she wrote, Guess you will take your "4th" swing in a porch swing instead of an air ship...
This postcard was created by the postcard artist Ellen Hattie Clapsaddle (1865-1934).
