Friday's Photo: Found on eBay

Charles W. Giddens
I have saved searches on eBay for some family names and hometowns of some of my ancestors. My grandmother grew up in Phillipsburg, New Jersey so every time that something is posted for sale in eBay with "Phillipsburg" in the title or description, I receive an email. 

I think that I have or have seen every postcard made in the late 1800s and early 1900s in Phillipsburg so when I saw this one I looked carefully - why would there be a statue of a famous person from Cuba in Phillipsburg. Then, I realized that it wasn't in Phillipsburg, but sent to Mr. Charles Giedon Jr.  (really Charles Giddens, Jr.) at 310 Main Street in Phillipsburg on March 2, 1909. Charles Giddens, my great - uncle, was my grandmother's brother and just 16 years old in 1909.
