Milwaukee Treasures: Flicks & Scribbles

While snuffling through my studio closet looking for my Bedazzler, I unearthed a super-secret stash of vintage Milwaukee postcards. What an awesome surprise! One of the perks of being terribly forgetful is that life is full of little presents you didn't remember you had...

The postmarks on the technicolor cards range from 1909 to 1919. It's challenging to imagine so much elbow room between buildings and the streets buzzing with Model T's. My favorite part about these cards is the delicate penmanship: beautifully human flicks and scribbles of our fair city's past.

Do you have a favorite treasure?

Keep digging, Muffins.
