Those Places Thursday - Mt. Vernon, Illinois Town Square

I bought this old postcard on eBay of my hometown, Mt. Vernon, Illinois postmarked 1915 that shows the North side of the downtown square looking West.   I just love these old postcards because I can imagine my ancestors strolling the streets, or perhaps pulling up to a store in their horse and buggy to go shopping.

  1. I tried to find a way to email you, may have missed it with my great eyesight today.Thank you for the nice post. I have found that there are many connections between Posey, IN and White, IL since it seems they all liked to "cross the river" frequently throughout their live times. Maybe we'll find there are connections somewhere down the line.
