Letters from 1929 Found by Kalamazoo Man, Seeks Original Owners

For most of us, if we were to discover a few pieces of old mail we would probably just throw it in the trash, right?

Well, that’s not the case for Steven Ellis, a member of the Facebook group Vanished Kalamazoo. Recently, Steven shared a post along with a few photos of what looks like antique envelopes. The caption read,

“I found some old envelopes the other day from 1926-1929 addressed to 512 Alcott St. In googling the address, it appears that it is now a vacant lot/woods to the right of the house shown at 516 Alcott (at Adelade St) The letters were addressed to Mrs Sam Scott, Mrs Martha LaPorte and Mrs Frank Stern? Three different families sharing the house? Did anyone grow up near here or know the families?”

You can see the photos of the envelopes here.
