Postcard to Marie Lutkens from her sister Minnie 1910

Marie Lutkens Drussel, the daughter of Henry Lutkens, was one of the pioneering families of Elbe. Here’s a postcard sent to her from her sister Minnie.

The postcard is dated 1910, and was probably stamped by the Alder postmaster at the time Martin Hotes. The post office was seven miles outside Eatonville on the north shore of Alder lake. The Hotes family ran the office from the time it was established in 1902 through 1921.
