Postcards: Words from the women themselves

Between 1890-1920, Esther, Lydia and Anna Strasburger wrote and received more than 100 postcards. These beautiful cards have colorful images on the front, giving a special sense of the time and place. The messages on the back describe intimate moments within the sisters' lives while the postmarks map their journey west. These postcards are a rare written account from the women themselves. They reveal some of the most intimate moments of life on the homestead from almost 100 years ago.
