My 3.4 mile commute to and from work includes a short drive along the Southeast shoreline of Lake Calhoun (highlighted in yellow on the map shown below).
The Library of Congress added more than 400 oversize postcards to the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog this week. Included in this group is a postcard that shows what this portion of my commute would have looked like 100+ years ago.

Yup, the a-z challenge is over and I’m still posting vintage photos (and photos of dogs).
