Derickson Family, Selbyville Delaware

Here are 3 old postcards that were sent to the Derickson Family in Selbyville DE. Two of these pictured were sent to Mrs. N.M. Derickson and one to Mary E. Derickson.

Mr. Derickson must have worked on a ship, because one card in this collection was sent to him in care of the Schooner Mary B. Baird, in Jacksonville Florida. The sender originally mailed the card to Mayport FL, but that address was scratched out possibly because Mr. Derickson had already left for the next port. The new address also included (in care of) J.H.A. Hussey.

The postcard on the lower right is a "Carte Postale" and it features a print of Le Theatre Municipal in Saigon, Vietnam.

There are twelve old Derickson postcards in all, and they were mailed between 1909 and 1917.
