    the time period is around 1920 give – Ruth was born in 1918 – postcard was to her when my grandfather was working on the canal – they ate in the building and there was a movie theater there too – I can add a postcard showing this and the note to Aunt Ruth – tell me how – I would guess those in front were cz workers

    and I am changing the date in my estimate – around 1940 – pulled back the stamp I see 194 next to the post office cancel – I did confirm the stamp is a 1940 stamp. Gail the last surviving child passed away 2 months ago, so I could not get the work dates on the canal. I have a 1940 Havana post card – so 1940 makes sense
