Postcards from a boy

Some postcards that Richy (notice that he signed his name with a "y" and not an "ie"?) sent to his dear Grandma back home while in Hamburg.    These post cards remind me of how wonderful it is for us as fans that the Beatles were around in the 1960's and not today.    If it was today, Richy would have sent his Grandma a text message or dropped her a note on Facebook.    But in the 1960's, if you were away from home, you sent postcards back to the family.     They really are a treasure.
