Orphan Photo #46


Orphan 006-B

This real photo postcard was originally featured on my other blog, GenBlog.

Addressee:  Frank Trapp, Taylorville, Illinois

Postmark:  Colorado Springs, Colorado, 27 Jul 1925

Signed:  Vin

Postcard imprint reads

Mt. Manitou Scenic Incline

At the Summit of the longest and highest incline on the globe.  You cannot afford to come to Colorado and not take this grand trip.

The message reads:

Sure am seeing the sights.  Look in Pike's Peak Saturday, seeing sunset from top & coming down after dark.  Would like to put in a month out here if I could afford it.  Vin

There is no other identifying information.  Oddly enough, this could be one of my Trapps, but I haven’t found a connection as of yet.
