Rare Pre-Dedication Memorial Building Postcard Discovered!

October 19, 2015

A real-photo postcard has been discovered and purchased by CAMPer, Kyle Stetz, that pre-dates the dedication of the Cattaraugus County Memorial and Historical Building in Little Valley, NY. The postcard is postmarked May 21, 1914.

The postcard was mailed from Little Valley, NY almost 4 months before the dedication of the Memorial Building that took place on September, 7, 1914. The card contains a real photo of the building rather than an artist’s rendering. The detail is very good as a result. The front and back of the postcard are displayed below:
