A 'Swenglish' journey through family photos, notes and postcards
from the early 20th century.


G.048.01 - Manufacturing District, Jamestown N.Y. (1910)


Manufacturing District, Jamestown, N.Y.

To: Mr Gust Ekman, Galeton, Box 342, Potter Co, Penna [Pennsylvania]
From: Manda Henrickson, Jamestown, N.Y. (1910?)

Tack för kortet som du sände mig då du var vid Niagara Falls. Du hade väl flickan med dig vid fallet. De bästa hälsningar till dig från Manda Henrickson, 27 Broadhead Ave, Jamestown, N.Y.

Thanks for the card you sent me from Niagara Falls. I assume you had the girl with you by the fall. Best wishes to you from Manda Henrickson, 27 Broadhead Ave, Jamestown N.Y.


There is no postmark to confirm when this card was sent, but in the postcard album it sits in between others from 1910. The address Manda gives here is the same one that John Beckman gives on a card from October 1909: G.044.01 "French Dressing". I thought from that card that maybe he and Manda had split up; but as we now learn that they both moved to the same new address, that seems not to be the case. (Cf. G.041.03, from Manda in June 1909, where she says that she and Beckman are living together; but then at a different address.)
