Grave


Postcard, stamped November 23th, 1945, Louisville Kentucky. Front illustration depicts the Pioneer Cemetery in Harrodsburg, Kentucky and the grave of "the first white child buried in Kentucky."

Inside:

This we believe is the most unique graveyard we've yet seen, and we managed to get some swell shots of the whole place.

Love, M + U


Found in "The Web of Evil" by Lucille Emerick. Published by Doubleday, 1948.

"the grave of 'the first white child buried in Kentucky.'"

Classy.

Why do I get the feeling that there is no marker for "the first non-white child buried in Kentucky"?

I just discovered your blog recently, and I must say that I am enjoying it very much. I love books, and I love the unique things associated with books. Amazingly, sometimes I pick up one of my own books and find something in it that I have used as a bookmark and forgotten about...a note from my son as a child was one of the best surprises!

I agree with snippa -- creepy postcard! The book itself looks rather creepy as well, despite proclaiming to be about love.

Now, THAT is a cool find!

(I'm a cemetery photographer. I love stuff like this!)

Oh my. The Web of Evil looks like quite the penny dreadful. A good place to keep a post card of a graveyard
