This week's Sepia Saturday theme has to do with singing and old songs. In my monster post of this week, "An Account of the Fletcher's Crossing the Plains", I did include some pictures of a songbook containing pioneer songs. This particular post finishes up the sets of vintage postcards that Uncle John and Aunt Signa bought on their honeymoon.
From those humble beginnings, Salt Lake City looked like this around the 1940's, when my Uncle John Hedrick and Aunt Signa Woods Hedrick visited there on their honeymoon in November 1945. To see the postcards that they purchased of Reno, Nevada on their way to Salt Lake City, please check out last week's posts: "Uncle John and Aunt Signa Go to Reno" and "Vintage Reno and Vicinity Postcards".
The newlyweds bought this postcard packet, distributed by the Deseret Book Co. of Salt Lake City, which has been in business since 1866.
The following photo postcards were inside:
