Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition
Seattle Washington
June 1-Oct 16, 1909

This Souvenir Folding Card, an official publication of the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition held on the dates noted above was postmarked Aug 20, 1909 in Seattle, Washington. It was mailed from Louie Yehle to his sister-in-law, Mrs. Casimir T. (Mary) Yehle in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Louis was the only Yehle sibling who moved to Canada in the mid-1910s and may have been living in either Canada or Seattle at the time of the Exposition.
