Happy Birthday to our followers with September Birthdays. You share a birth month with Etta Griffin Brock (1876-1934) who collected most of the postcards contained in this blog. Etta was a school teacher who lived in Bloomington, Indiana. Besides postcard collecting she enjoyed quilting and traveling to visit relatives. She married Samuel Brock in 1916 at the age of 40. I always get the feeling she would have enjoyed Tumblr.
The original postcard is postmarked September 23, 2010 from Bloomington, Indiana

Original postcard is postmarked 1910 from Seattle, Washington.
The building in the picture was built in 1898, originally as an annex of the Lewis and Clark school. It was later renamed Whitman Elementary. The new Whitman Elementary building built in 1948 is still in use. The history of school in Lewiston Idaho here.
