When they were a penny

kw: reminiscences, history, post cards

A friend directed me to the GenWeb Penny Post Card Archives, where I snagged a couple of images from my own past.

I spent half of my formative years in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. We visited the Capitol Building once.

Even earlier, I was born in Pasadena, California, and we lived in the area until I was about six. My wife and my brother and I visited the old City Hall just a couple of years ago. Still as beautiful as ever.

I remember penny post cards, but vaguely. I also remember when a regular letter was two cents, but about the time we moved to SLC the price went to three cents.
