Leamington, Ontario

Today’s postcard is a companion card to yesterday’s post of Jack Miners Bird Sanctuary. The beautiful beaches and cottages are reminiscent of days long ago spent by the shore.

The card was postmarked 1951 and addressed to Mr. & Mrs. L.M. Colson of Murray, Kentucky. With a little research we find them  as Limon Maydock Colson and his wife, Gussie.
