Mail call: Postcards from Florida of York County in the past

Today’s fun images came along with a letter from Bob Steindl of Pompano Beach, Florida.

Bob writes, “My wife Priscilla and I are ex-Yorkers, now living in Florida. Friends from back home send us articles from the newspapers quite often. The most recent was your article about movie memories etc. which we enjoyed very much. Brings back memories.”

He continues, “Enclosed are some old York postcards which you might be interested in writing about.”

Bob’s five postcards were really amazing. I’ve included the images from the fronts of them below. Interestingly, three were actually sent cards with writing and postmarks; I’ve included the details I have in the captions as well.

Bob, thank you so much for sharing these cards with us. It’s so fun to see these scenes from the past!
