Mar 29, 1957?I can’t read the year on the postcard, but if it is 1957, the Erwin family lived here for many years.
Lanikai, Hawaii TH
Dear Mrs. Erwin-
These are the girls I saw dancing Sunday. A wealthy Chinaman wife had a baby boy - 1 yr old- there were 1000 of us at the feast, 5 pigs roasted under ground, sweet potatoes roasted under ground, dish long rice and chicken, all the beer you could drink Coke. I never (saw) such a feed. (Having) a grand time. Love, Eta
Other stories of items found in the walls during renovation can be found here, here, and here.
I'm really digging these posts. There was a lot done this month. It will be finished in no time now.
I just have to wonder... how did this stuff GET there... esp. the boxers stuff!
Your blog is great! I searched for Portland blogs and yours came up. I tried looking for when those postcards were made and here is the only thing I could find with the picture. http://www.janesoceania.com/hawaii_hula5/index2.htm
Reading that postcard just makes me hungry for more!
It is very strange that all that stuff was embedded in the walls. How did it end up there?
I love these finds. Do you know get extra excited when something gets demolished?
My friends in Florida found a bunch of beer cans in their floor boards when they were renovating.
I use to find beauty products in my walls at my former place they would slide down from the medicine cabinet and when it finally needed to be replaced you could see all this stuff - mainly bobbie pins and razors BUT your stuff is SO treasure hunter fun.
Again, thanks for sharing.
Totally loving all these great finds that you're sharing with us!
