Monroe Hope and His Postcards

September 26, 2011

One of Monroe Hope’s favorite ways of sending mail was by sending postcards with his picture on the front. There was typically some sort of message that was probably better understood if the person really knew Monroe well–especially with his sense of humor. Below are two examples of those postcards.

This card was sent to Ethel Woodington before they were married. She called him “Hopie.”

  1. I love the simple mailing address. The postal stamp shows it was mailed, so that address must have worked.
