The only thing more fun than summer ending and being back in school, is getting a postcard of a school – from small-town Ohio. Here’s such an item from the Collection, circa 1925:
Coshocton, Ohio has many attractions – and their websites lists many of them. Oddly enough, this high school is not one of them. It’s a fine looking school – certainly nicer than the 1960s and 1970s era dumpy schools I went to – I just wouldn’t have thought it merited being immortalized in postcard form. But then I wasn’t in Coshocton in 1925.
July 21, 1925
I arrived here at 11:42 P.M. Saturday. Had the company of a Coshocton-lady all the way from Detroit – who knew my [?] Cousin Henry. Rather fortunate for me, wasn’t it. So I enjoyed my trip down. Love to Nellie and Kiddies. Lovingly ‘Amy’ ”
In my entire collection, I have a ton of postcards of beaches and mountains, churches and castles – but this school postcards are rare. Probably because school is something we want to forget about when we travel.
