12 Collection of about 150 POST CARDS issued during World War II.

Largely from all over east coast, but some from middle west. About 130 to Somerville, MA & twenty to Burlington, NC. Well above half are the "free" frank soldier-sent cards from all over U.S. Also some from Nebraska to Massachusetts. A few cards in Greek language. I believe these are all same family but the last name suffered from mis-spelling and poor calligraphy: Meletiou, Magrokanis, Maories, etc. The young lady who received these cards had several admirers. The family sent cards, also. From the addresses one can trace her migration from MA to NC. where she seems to have married into a restaurant family. (5478081756)
