Post Card Mailed In 1943 Finally Arrives, Sometimes Post Cards Are Found In Old Mailbags

A postcard sent to two Elmira sisters nearly seven decades ago arrived last week at the intended address, but it ended up in the hands of two different sisters.

The postcard, sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., was intended for Pauline and Theresa Leisenring, who once lived in the home along Bridgman Street in Elmira.

It was sent by their parents, who were visiting their brother at the Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant.

Last week, the postcard arrived at the home of Adam and Laura Rundell.

“It was delivered in mint condition. We were so shocked,” Laura said. “It’s a treasure that just showed up in the mailbox with our address on it.

Karen Mazurkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service in Buffalo stated ”Sometimes, letters or postcards are found in an old mailbag or behind machinery.
