Today we text. Yesterday we sent postcards. This particular postcard was sent from Chehalis, Wash., in 1910 to Marie Lutkins (Lutkens) in Elbe. Her dad had built the Lutkens Hotel in 1894. He was quite the fisherman and kept the hotel stocked with all the trout it needed.

I found a reference that board at the hotel was $10 to $12 per month for teachers. (History of Tacoma Eastern Area)

She was a hiker. There is a shot of Marie climbing Mt. Rainier glaciers with her friends.
