Sets of postcard scenes of "Old Ridgefield" are being offered for sale to benefit the Ridgefield Historical Society. The cards are glossy, enhanced reproductions of actual postcards published more than a century ago. The back of each card gives a brief explanation of the scene. Each set contains the eight cards plus a ninth different scene. The cost is $10 for the set of nine cards, postage included. The eight cards are: \u00a0 The Hermit of Ridgefield (George Washington Gilbert) and his decaying house. \u00a0 The town hall with two ladies and a carriage. \u00a0 St. Mary's Church and Rectory (the latter no longer there). \u00a0 A scene of the northern business district of Main Street. \u00a0 The Ridgefield firehouse, about 1910. \u00a0 The West Lane schoolhouse around 1905, along with a horse and buggy. \u00a0 The Cass Gilbert Fountain not long after it was installed in 1916. \u00a0 The Keeler Tavern, now a museum. The ninth card could be: \u00a0 The Community Center\/Lounsbury House, when it was still owned by the Lounsbury family and wasn't painted white. \u00a0A scene of the southern Main Street business district from around 1905. \u00a0 The village train station on Prospect Street. \u00a0 The First Congregational Church. Orders should note a preference and second choice on the ninth card, supplies of each are limited. Twenty-five percent of the sales will go to the historical society ridgefieldhistoricalsociety.org, which, like many nonprofits, is experiencing reduced income during the Covid affair. Creator of the cards, Jack Sanders, ridgefieldhistory.com and founder of the Old Ridgefield group on Facebook, an avid correspondent using postcards, said, "If you mail a card, you will be doing a little bit to help the U.S. Postal Service, which could use more first-class mail business. Postcard stamps are 35 cents, but, of course, the first class 'forever' stamps at 55 cents also work. Stamps can easily be ordered online at USPS.gov." To order a set of cards, send $10 to Jack Sanders, 91 Olmstead Lane, Ridgefield CT 06877. You may also use Paypal to email@example.com. Either way, be sure to include your mailing address.
