Treasure in the Attic: Early postcards worth big bucks

December 26, 2011
The Marietta Times

When we purchased a home on Franklin Street in Marietta in the late 1970s, we not only bought the home, we bought the entire contents, with food still in the refrigerator and the kitchen cupboards. The lady who had lived there had died, and her son just didn't want to bother moving any belongings out of the house. Turns out we ended up with everything, including family photos which we returned to the family, except for a cigar box of old early postcards of Marietta. One of these postcards showed President Roosevelt in Civitan Park. I ended up selling these Fischer Studio postcards to Jerry Devol who collected postcards of early Marietta.
