My paternal grandmother, Minnie Pitts Powell, attended beauty school. While there(I believe), she wrote to her parents using this postcard.
During one of our conversations, she told me that what she really wanted to be was a nurse. Her parents didn’t think that nursing was an honorable profession, since she would have to see naked men, so she became a beautician.
Minnie wrote home, but addressed it to herself.
