Grandma Jesse's Easter postcards

I love old things, such as these postcards that belonged to my husband's grandmother, Jesse Truman Gross. Grandma Jesse was the first woman named mayor of York. She took over as mayor in October 1969 upon the death of John L. Snyder. Grandma Jesse was married to Chester Gross, my husband's grandfather and a U.S. Congressman. 

Addressed: Little Jesse Truman
       Lucas, Iowa
Contains a 1-cent stamp. I'm figuring Lucas, Iowa, must
have been pretty small if they knew by this address where Jesse lived.

Here is my Pinterest board with more old postcards.

Here are some of her Christmas postcards.
