My subscription to Life expired, but I still have a subscription to Mad.

Congregational Church, Wolcott, Conn.

Many postcard collectors include postcards related to their hometown in their collections. I do, too.

I was born and raised in Waterbury, CT, and moved to Wolcott, CT, after I married, so I include Waterbury and Wolcott postcards among the cards I collect.

Waterbury postcards are plentiful and I have hundreds in my collection. On the other hand, Wolcott postcards are rare. I probably add one or two new Wolcott postcards to my collection each year and just added number 32 today when the mailman delivered the postcard pictured above.

The 1908 postmarked postcard is a real photo postcard depicting the Congregational Church, which is on Center Street opposite the Wolcott Green. One hundred and two years later, the Congregational Church is still in business in the same building, which you can see here.
