Hi, Since I started doing my genealogy and discovered all my Quaker heritage,
I became interested and wanted to know what it looked like-"back then". I
began collecting picture postcards of Meeting Houses. For anyone who goes to
flea markets,if you dig,you can find! I have been unable so far to find one
