Mailed from Spring Green, Wisconsin to Mrs. Christ Hutter of Plain, Wisconsin on December 29, 1910:
I wish you a Happy New Year got your card but I am not eating onions. I am working at Otto Franks for all winter and I think I will help you clean house in the Spring. From Margareth
This is a series of three postcards published in 1910 showing the corner of Fifth and Broadway in Gary, Indiana.
The first card shows the intersection in 1906.
The second card, featuring the intersection in 1908, shows how much Gary boomed in just two years.
The final card, complete with a touched-up portrayal of Halley’s Comet, shows the now thriving town complete with electric lights.
Gary was a thriving steel town for a number of years. Now it is a shell of its former self. You can see a 2016 view of Fifth and Broadway here.
