New Castle, DE

I seem to have acquired the postcard collection of Bob Millspaugh, formerly of Newburgh, New York. What is curious is that far more of the postcards were sent from Bob than to Bob. How did they end up back in the same place, I do not know. Quite a few were sent by Bob to his mother, Fannie Millspaugh, so it makes sense that these would have gone back to Bob, perhaps after her death.

Bob’s writing is very perfunctory, perhaps hardly worth mentioning, but taken together they tell a bit of a story. I have two copies of this card, one from 1952 and one from 1954. Both make reference to the annual Dupont company bowling tournament held in late March. In 1952 the weather was almost like summer, but in 1954 there was heavy rain all the way.
