Vintage Alexandra School Postcard

This 100 year old postcard is the latest addition to my growing collection of Medicine Hat memorabilia. Featuring the original Alexandra School, this postcard was mailed on April 19, 1913 to De Soto, Missouri. 

I love the message on this one as it makes me curious about the scene and his job. Medicine Hat was booming, and this guy sent this message home: "Haven't heard from you in some time. Am going to work for C.P.R. Line at noon. How is mother? Love to all." Short and sweet - a vintage text message.
