A Little Package

“A little package containing a Baby Girl was born to Mr. & Mrs. J. Pomp of Overisel, Mich. at 2 a.m. Name:  June Pomp. Weight:  8 1/2 lbs. Date:  Dec. 6, 1915.”

Well, the fact that Michigan is the birth state for June worked out perfectly for this card, since the M there was set up for a.m or p.m. Perfect, though. And a cute announcement for sure, showing stork and package in pink with baby, and charming village in the distance. The postcard was sent to:

“Mrs. Chaffee, Sr., Herreid, S. Dakota.”

Michigan marriage records show that June’s parents were Julius Pomp and Gertrude Shoop (but possibly Schaap per Ancestry family trees.) June married Walter Mack on August 31, 1940.

Divided back, embossed, used postcard. Postmarked December 6, 1915 from Holland, Michigan. Publisher:  SAS. Number or series:  511.
