Main Street, Looking North at Night, Dayton, Ohio.  Meiler Series No. 13, American Art.  A 26212

Post marked Dayton, Ohio.  Jul. 2, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G. / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave., detroit, Mich.

“Dayton, O. Gen Del. 7-2-18   Dear Florence: – Suppose you think I am a long time sending that postal.  To [sic.] much excitement . ha ha. Well, we are not house keeping yet.  There is no houses in this burg.  Business is good here so they are just flocking here.  We are light housekeeping now.   We want to wait to get something that suits us.  So, address me to Gen. Del. at present.  Hope you are both well & happy. From Mrs. A. J. Glendening.”

Things of interest in 1918.  Grandma is addressed as Florence and the body of the card appears to be from a peer, but it is still signed formally as Mrs. A. J. Glendening.  I have no idea who this was.  Also of interest is the use of general delivery as an address.   You do not see that very much in the 21st century.
