Postcard Finally Arrives In Mail 100 Years Later

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. There is snail mail, and then there is this. A postcard addressed to Roy McQueen just arrived in Belding, Mich., a hundred years after it was put in the mail. Brittany Keech found it inside her mailbox this week, a Halloween postcard from Flossie Burgess postmarked October 29, 1920. It's addressed to her cousins and has a one-cent George Washington stamp in the corner. Keech is trying to find the family to return the postcard. It's MORNING EDITION.
