Doris Alman of Mason City, Iowa, was sent a postcard mailed by her parents to her grandmother back in 1968.
Alman turned her attention to the envelope the card was mailed in, wondering who sent it to her.Sound familiar? I blogged last January about a similar case in South Carolina.
The No. 10 envelope has a one-line return address: Lost Postcard Rescue Dept.
The envelope has a 41-cent Gerald Ford postage stamp and the postmark shows it was mailed from Brooklyn, N.Y., on Nov. 21, 2007.
That’s where the mystery rests for Alman.
“I have no idea who it came from,” she said. “You would almost have to think it was someone who does genealogy because our last names are different.” [Link]
The envelope the card came in was postmarked in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Dec. 9. The return address is an e-mail account held by someone using the moniker "lost.postcards." [Ned] Hethington has e-mailed the account several times but has yet to receive a reply.
