christmas1919_edited-1

A Very Merry Christmas.  I will wish you the wish of long ago – A Merry Merry Christmas.   C-267.  Made in U.S.A.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio  Dec 20, 1919.  Addressed to Miss Lela [Leila] Marie Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“From Uncle Heinie [Henry Allen Koontz]”

Uncle Heinie was a man of few words!  In 1919, he was 19 years old and a student at Ohio State University.  The post card was for his sister, Florence’s daughter, Leila, who had been born the prior October.  So, this would have been her first Christmas.
