Finders Keepers 18

More armchair travel, this time to Manitoba and Lower Fort Garry’s Big House. This stone fort makes for an interesting visit if you are near Selkirk, just north of Winnipeg.

A humorous postcard that might be better hidden in a book for all eternity. Oh! and there’s a note on the back…

Another Post Card. I guess you could call this another sort of armchair travel. I wish I’d found this a few years ago. We travelled very close to this route on our way to Tennessee, and it would have made an interesting break from the road to see this natural wonder.

Look at this beautiful scene! One of my favourite finds in books is old post cards.

This one is so beautiful. It's an odd size, too.

Especially if there’s a letter to read on the other side. This one was sent in 1913.

Why was it such a hard pull? Was Tanner operating a railway jigger (that’s only half a joke)? Or was this an emotional pull?

Is this a descendant of ‘The Falcon’, this E Tanner?

Did Tanner live in Carberry, or was the little village another stop on a longer journey?

So many questions…
