Off to Oregon
I know that I have been posting for awhile, but I feel a lot of the story begins now as Dad heads off to Oregon. I'm not sure how much of the country he had seen before this but I do not think he had been outside of the midwest. I believe that they would go to Chicago to sell cattle. These postcards were typed, some on the train. I try to picture what that would look like. I remember taking my typewriter to college in 1969 and it was considered a portable. What was the size of a typewriter in 1942? Then compare that with the labtops we carry around today.
