Smile for the Camera Valentines

This is a postcard to my dad Claude Hansen when he was 9 years old from his cousin Walter Hansen. My dad was born in Sebeka, Minnesota to Anton and Anna Hansen on a farm right next door to Anton's brothers Lawrence Hansen and John Hansen. Walter Hansen was a son of Lawrence Hansen and was only 5 years old when this card was sent.

Anton and Anna Hansen and family moved to Columbus Montana in 1910, where Anton ran the creamery.


  1. Charles,

    Thanks, so much, for stopping by my blog.
    I love these old postcards, just takes me back...
    I was on Prodigy for quite a while, as well!

  2. How cute! Amazing that it's been saved all these years and is still in such great shape. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. Thanks Nancy, My dad had a book made to keep post cards in, and I have about 40 or 50 old postcards he saved.
