I've been on a hiatus from all my blogs the last couple of weeks, well from the computer actually due to severe back pain. After working on the computer all day at my office the last thing I want to do when I come home is sit down in another desk chair and type! I've missed the last couple of Sepia Saturdays and when I checked today and saw that this week's topic was "Library" I knew I had just the thing! I have this great postcard I bought to post on my other blog, RogersFamilyHistory which I write about my husband's family. His grandfather Alvin S. Rogers and great-grandfather Elmer H. Rogers were both well known doctors in Trenton, NJ in the early 1900's. Somewhere in all my piles and piles of "stuff" I know I have documentation that Alvin attended the NJ State Normal School in Trenton, at least for a time. However, I cannot find this document and so have not posted this postcard on that blog. Therefore it will be perfect for today's post on Sepia Saturday!
The postcard was posted in 1908 from someone named Minnie, evidently a student and it was sent to Miss Florence Melville in Newark, NJ. Minnie had this to say:
"Every thing is very much different up here, but I am having a good time, although we have to study. I suppose you are having a dandy time now. Love from Minnie - Normal Hall Trenton, NJ"
