Wait A Minute Mister Postman; Postcard Party 2

One of my favorite subjects often depicted on postcards are images of the hustle and bustle of daily life in the early 20th century.  I love old street scene of places where I have lived or visited but I especially love postcards that show the everyday jobs people did.  Imagine having to lift heavy barrels and feed bags in long-sleeve shirts, dress pants and vest or milk a cow in a long full dress?  Seems crazy but yet that was just another day in the neighborhood for folks in the early 1900s. 

Here are a couple of my personal favorites:
