POSTCARDS
A Great Hobby

On this "hobby page" I am going to tell you about the fasinating hobby of collecting post cards.  I will include some history, some of my collections, and cards that I have for sale.  This is just a start in early 2002, but please come back.

A.C. DIETSCHE'S SHOP. With the exception of the ticket office and cigar stand the entire shop at 83 Woodward Ave. is given over to the display of souvenir post cards, which fill the windows, cover the counters, and even the wall is papered with them. Mr. Dietsche started with the post card industry and has built up a business in which he disposes of millions of cards every year. His "postal card shop" is one of the sights of Detroit.  Mailed from Detroit in 1909.

We all should have the cards that
Mr. Dietsche had in Detroit!!!
