After the research I did about Medicine Hat's original city hall, I couldn't help but snap up this vintage postcard when I came across it. Much like the old postcard I found of St. Patrick's Church, one of my favorite things about this one is that it was used. Mailed from Medicine Hat in 1926, and affixed with a 2 cent King George V stamp, it went off to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The message handwritten on the back couldn't have given a more glowing account of this couples experience in Medicine Hat: "We are stopping here for 20 minutes. Love to all, Mama and Dad". It really paints a picture, right? It was like a vintage text message. They thought it was worth sending a postcard though, and it's kind of amazing that it's lasted for nearly 90 years before making its way back here. At the very least, it's a cool bit of local memorabilia.
