1938 William Gaber Western Union Telegram

Back in the old days, July 3, 1938 to be precise, people sent telegrams to inform friends and family of breaking news. Dot and Jack sent this telegram via Western Union at 10th and State Street in Erie, PA. They sent news to Mr. and Mrs. William F. Gaber of 507 East 7th Street, Erie Pennsylvania 16503.
