Westlake Park 1917 Card from Aunt Tillie Holmes to Harry C Glessner
The tradition of the Glessner Family according to Peg, in the teens and 20's was to rent a place near WestLake in LA, now known as MacArthur Park. While visiting the Chappelear relatives, they would center out of this area. On the back of this card postmarked in Nov 1917 "Mr H C Glessner 1228 S Main St. Findlay Ohio. L.A. Cal. Dear Harry, Received your mothers nice letter. So glad you are better. I ordered the incense. They say it is much better than in the paper. Try it and see. Alice is quite comfortable now, sits in a wheel chair. I saw her last Thursday. Was just up the hill ____in this __ stair. Aunt Tillie (Holmes)
