One of my sisters-by-choice, is a Jamestown, New York girl. She spent several weeks there recently and sent me these postcards. We lovingly call ourselves Lucy and Ethel (she's Lucy and I'm Ethel). Not only do I enjoy Lucy and the gang from the television show (always good for a laugh), but I Love *MY* Lucy.
This post card is called The Nursery School.
The back of the card reads
Nursery School (aired December 5, 1955).
On the front, this card reads "The story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz all began here in Jamestown, New York, where Lucy was born on August 6, 1911. When Lucille Ball was very young, this is where she lived, saw her first vaudeville, dreamed of an acting career and stared in her first high school play. Later, when she had met and married Desi Arnaz and I Love Lucy was a remarkable success, Lucille Ball never forgot Jamestown. She came back often and remained close to her family and friends. We welcome them back now to relive their true story."
The back of the card reads: "The Lucy-Desi Museum, Jamestown, New York whose mission is to preserve and celebrate the legacy of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and enrich the world through the healing powers of love and laughter."
