Daisy Sends a Church to Emma- Marysville, Ohio (1907)

We met Emma Hankel in an earlier postcard story; Emma collected postcard photographs of churches sent by her many fellow-collectors.

Emma lived in Galion, a city about 60 miles north of Columbus.

Among the friends with whom Emma exchanged postcards was Daisy.

Daisy lived in Marysville, a city smaller than Galion and located 35 miles northwest of Columbus.  It is about 50 miles between Marysville and Galion.

In September of 1907, Daisy mailed to Emma a postcard photograph of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Marysville.

This large church with its square tower still welcomes worshippers in Marysville (although now a United Methodist Church).

The postcard was printed in Leipzig or Berlin, and published by the Cleveland News Company.

On the reverse, Daisy adds a breezy note about her tardiness in responding, and inquires “how are you by this time”.

Dozens of churches from the collection of Emma Hankel could be found among the dealers of old paper at antique malls.  Alas, I never found any of the postcards sent by Emma.
