Union Station 1929 Fred Harvey Post Card - Harry Glessner to Margaret
This is the front of the post card mailed by my grandfather, Harry C Glessner in March of 1929 to his wife, Inez Chase Glessner in Findlay OH. "Thinking of Margaret" his only child, who was my mother, and then a student at Oberlin College in Ohio. This station was an icon for American train travel and a stop on the Santa Fe, Sky Chief that my Glessner Grandparents took to Arizona and California during the hayday of rail travel. I offer this as the beginning of a series of Santa Fe stations that were connected to the Fred Harvey tradition of dining on the trail of rails. Thanks to the spirit of Peg Glessner Weaver and Harry and Inez Glessner!
