More From the Brewers
More from the Brewers of Ohio. This is the third postcard I've found from this traveling family. This one is addressed to "F.A. Brewer, 623 N. St. Clair, Painsville, Ohio" I've managed to confirm that F.A. Brewer is Frank A. Brewer, born in Painsville, Ohio on May 30, 1891. There were quite a few Brewers born at about the same time. But who sent this postcard? The message, "Feeling fine. Had good milk. Children good, not tired, getting in Chicago. Will write soon. C.B." And added latter, "10 P.M. getting on train in Chicago." Not exactly florid prose. C.B. could be Frank's sister Carrie or perhaps Frank's wife. Impossible to tell. The card was postmarked "CHICAGO ILL OCT 9 1928" If C.B. and the kids were on their way to Painsville, did they beat the postcard?
