Helen Daigle postcards, religious images, and basket collection

Identifier: MCC-00482

Scope and Contents

This collection consists mostly of vintage color and black and white postcards from the early twentieth century, a small prayer book, two religious images, a Christmas card, and an ash basket with a lid.

Most of the vintage postcards were sent and written by members of two families, Dr. Thomas H. Pelletier family of Van Buren, and Dr. Wilfred Joseph Daigle family of Fort Kent. Dr. Wilfred J. Daigle married Rosalie Pelletier, daughter of Dr. Thomas Pelletier. Helen Daigle is the daughter of Dr. Daigle and Rosalie Pelletier. The postcards date back to the early 20th Century and are all in excellent condition. Some postcards do not have written messages.

The twentieth century storage ash basket has a square base with a round neck and a lid. Some of the wefts are of reddish color. (Base 9 inch square; basket rim 10.5 inches in circumference; the lid conforms to the rim size; rim height 3-inches.)
