Main Street, USA

This is a postcard showing Anderson Street, looking North, Elwood, Indiana. I am not sure of the date, but it appears it was never sent, and someone, probably someone little, left his message on the back in the scratches. From the cars on the front, I would guess it was taken in the late 1930's or early 1940's. Very different from Elwood today.

It certainly seems perfect for this month's Festival of Postcards on the theme of "Main Street".


  1. It certainly is! I love the solid brick buildings and in the enlarged version we get to see some of the clothing.
    Thanks for participating!
