Thanks to Facebook, postcard arrives after 54 yrs

A postcard mailed from Chicago in 1958 has finally reached its recipient, but not without a little help from Facebook.



Chicago: A postcard mailed from Chicago in 1958 has finally reached its intended recipient, but not without a little help from Facebook.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that a postcard depicting Shedd Aquarium recently arrived at Scott McMurry`s Virginia home, more than five decades after his mom mailed it.

The 71-year-old says he immediately recognised his mother`s handwriting.

The postcard was addressed to Clairmont Lane in Decatur, Georgia, where McMurry grew up. But it recently arrived in Elizabeth Fulcher`s mailbox on Clairmont Lane in South Daytona, Florida.

Fulcher posted a picture of the postcard on Facebook and her friends helped track down McMurry.

The half-century mail delay remains a mystery.

In the meantime, the aquarium has offered to give him a tour of the attraction that his late parents visited.
