After a 100-year delay, a postcard is delivered to a destination address in the USA

A resident of Belding, Michigan (United States), was surprised to receive, on September 8, a postcard dated October 29. Brittany Keech, the owner of the house, realized that this was not a time travel, but a hundred-year delay in delivery, which fell into the hands of the wrong recipient: the letter was from 1920.

“I received it in the mail today. It seems to be a very old letter. I would like to take it to a family member. Does anyone know this person?”, She published in a group of Facebook.

In the report, the American said that the first name of one of the recipients was erased, but that the other, identified as “Roy McQueen”, was readable.

Faced with a search of city records, which had the help of several people on social networks, she discovered that the house where she lives today belonged to a McQueen family at the time. However, they no longer lived there in the 1930s, according to the city census, in a survey by the New York Times.

To the newspaper, Tim Ratliff, representative of the United States postal system, said that sometimes old letters from past decades are found in the middle of the postal service. Ratliff stated that, despite this, it is rare that they reach the correct destination, or the relatives of the recipients, because everything is “lost in the system”.

In the Facebook group, one of the users said that it is possible that someone found the card in an antique store, checked the address and posted it at the post office to reach its original destination.
