Postcard week: Albany High School

Albany High School postcard

It’s postcard week here on Hoxsie. Back in 1916, Delia sent her niece Georgia Tarbell of East Wallingford, Vermont, a postcard depicting the then-new Albany High School. She wrote:

Well Dear Georgia
Just a card this time as I am not extra well. have been haveing the grip for a week past. have not done much. (?) so gaining slowly does a little. but we have such changeable weather. hope you are all well. please write if but a card how you all are with love am sending a calendar such as the Albany Hardware get out.
from aunt Delia

The building still exists, part of the SUNY downtown campus. It’s a lovely, representation of what a school should look like. Can’t say the same for the current high school.
