  5. Oh, that picture wins the prize for Too Cute!!!

    I was wondering whether the stamp mark might have been referring to the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, but the dates would be all was held in 1915, and the postmark was 1911. Unless...perhaps it was an early promotion?

    Oh I bet one of Talbert's descendants would just cherish having this postcard. Adorable.

  6. much info as this photo contains, you'd think there would be more on someone named Perry Talbert Pedersen. All I can find is that he died in 1990...but not where...and that he worked for the Matson lines, and was probably in the Merchant Marines. About the only family tree I can find him on is done by someone in Norway who appears to be a diligent researcher...but not necessarily a close relative :(

    Hope someone can add to that.
