1958 Postcard Mailed from Chicago Finally Arrives

A postcard mailed from Chicago in 1958 has finally reached its intended recipient, but not without a little help from Facebook.

A postcard depicting Shedd Aquarium recently arrived at Scott
McMurry's Virginia home, more than five decades after his mom
mailed it.

The 71-year-old says he immediately recognized his mother's
handwriting.

The postcard was addressed to Clairmont Lane in Decatur, Ga.,
where McMurry grew up. But it recently arrived in Elizabeth
Fulcher's mailbox on Clairmont Lane in South Daytona, Fla.

Fulcher posted a picture of the postcard on Facebook and her
friends helped track down McMurry.

The half-century mail delay remains a mystery.

In the meantime, the aquarium has offered to give him a tour of
the attraction that his late parents visited.
