Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition Souvenir Mailing Card

After reviewing exactly how many postcards we have to interpret - it will be a lengthy process. Based on my count the collection has as many as 800+ postcards, more than two-thirds need Swedish > English translations. While this will take some time, in the meantime there's still hundreds of photographs to celebrate.  

Before more photos are posted, I'd like to share this fully intact 109 year old, 19 page accordion style postcard book from the 1905 Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland, OR. Erik Andreas Persson must have been impressed with the fairgrounds, as this booklet was purchased and mailed all the way to his future bride Ottolina Thilander in Krokom, Sweden. Lucky for me, I discovered two pressed clover leaves when opening this booklet.

Portlanders should get a kick out of these, enjoy!
