Postcard Friendship Friday

The lovely postmistress, Marie, is our hostess for Postcard Friendship Friday. Marie has had an interest in Arkansas lately. I didn't have a card from Arkansas so I visited the New York Public Library again for the postcard below. I like trains!


"Near Lancaster Arkansas on the St. Louis - Texas Line of the Frisco" Fred Harvey"

Happy PFF!

Mmmmm, it's nice to lose yourself in these cards. I can imagine myself on a train, in a sleeper car, clickety-clack with the back and forth sway. I travelled by train a lot as a child, nice memories. Thanks!

I love trains and these kind of vintage cards too. Happy PFF!

Love those vintage post cards, they had so much going on in the landscape. Always a river or stream
to pass by on the train.

Hope all went well yesterday, prayers with you and Mr. Dragon.

Planes, trains and automobiles - any trip is good with me!

I love seeing the old postcards, Snap.. They don't make them like that anymore, do they???? I seldom get a postcard these days --although I see them for sale at tourist places. People just don't snail-mail much anymore at all.

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

I love old post cards too and this one is a prize. Also, calendars: can't get enough. I've asked this before, 'are we twins separated at birth?'
Happy Friday, my snappy friend!

I also love trains. As for postcards, I have a photo album of postcards that my online friends sent to my dad as he was battling cancer. Receiving a new one, from a new place, brightened his days. I treasure this book of postcards as much as my dad did. Have awonderful weekend:)

Love the muted tones of this postcard...And I just love the NY Public Library site. I've only used it a couple of times but I've really enjoyed playing around with it. Happy PFF!

Wonderful scenery. This could almost be a shot taken along Rte. 153 in my state of New Hampshire where the tracks follow the water. Happy belated PFF!

Marie Reed said...

I can almost hear the clickety clack of the train rumbling by too! This brings back such wonderful memories:) What a resourceful gal you are! I'm still obsessed with Arkansas for some reason! I want to move there:)
