Here is a letter written to my Great Grandfather, Carl Hankammer. Don't you just love the handwriting?!
This telegram was sent to my Great Great Great Grandmother, Phiannah (Fannie) Smith. Its dated 1889. And yes, the actual telegram is still inside the envelope.
Here is a picture of my Great Grandfather, Carl Hankammer, when he was a boy. I absolutely love this photo.
This is a receipt written to my Great Great Great Grandfather, John Gardner from 1842.
Another letter written to Phiannah Smith.
I don't know the name of this person. I'm sure its some cousin or other. I just thought that the dress was very classic.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas tree. I have various other things in the tree too. Old Christmas postcards. Letters from Germany. And old sheet music. And if you really like antiques too, just wait until I show you what I have displayed on my fireplace mantle...
