The Wide World of Post Cards (and Dance)

I started collecting postcards when I was a little kid. I have way too many. Enjoy! Thrown into the mix: a few photos I have taken or found, a lot of ballet photos, and a few family photos.

A family photo: John Dolan, my great great uncle, played first coronet and was a soloist with Sousa’s band. He directed an East Coast US tour while Sousa recuperated from a horse-riding accident. This shows the band in 1922 at the New York Hippodrome. I’m sad that it is so damaged!
