Blue Monday

August 2009 - Philadelphia PA

Thanks to a commenter, and shame on me for not investigating this further, here is a copy of the image courtesy of the Library Company.

  1. Hi Jackie,

    Quite interesting. I suppose they don't allow photographs of the postcard.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  2. Enjoyed this piece of history.

  3. What an interesting fact to learn. Thanks!!
    Here from Blue Monday....

  4. Now that's when I grumble about having to use my old camera, I've got nothing to complain about ;D
    I'd have loved to see the photograph wouldn't you?
    Thanks for sharing and Happy Blue Monday to you!

    1. Thanks, Nessie for your comment and I went and found a copy of the photo and have added it to my post.
