Postcards: Men/Youth

The photos are of men and juvenile boys are pictured on this set of postcards.  The subject of the first postcard is Oril Beard (1904 – 1978).  He was born in Randolph County.  Homer Carter is pictured in the next postcard.  The next two photos are of Paul Hall.  There is a military record for a Homer Carter listing Huttonsville, West Virginia as his residence.  He was born in 1896 making him a contemporary of my grandmother who was born in Huttonsville.  The postcard is addressed to my grandmother.  The heart-shaped photo has a one cent stamp attached and was postmarked in 1907.  It is addressed to my recently widowed young great-grandmother.  Perhaps it is a valentine.   The next four photographs are not labeled in any way.
