Helena Bertha Frei Post Card Collection

"Given in memory of Helena Bertha Frei--married to Fred Emil Fenske on May 8, 1912--in Fairwater, by Dorothy Louise Fenske--married to Wallace Earl Gogert on June 17, 1934--who treasures  her memories of times spent in Fairwater." 1/15/2001

The cards in this collection were mailed to Helena Frei before and just following, and to Fred Fenske before, their marriage. Many appear to have been mailed shortly after the date of the photographs, suggesting that area residents were on the lookout for new cards as they appeared.

Dates refer to postmark or letter date
