Hello Keith - / How is your arithmetic coming? Don't let any of the girls get ahead of you. If mother asks you to help you'll do it while I am away, won't you? / Love from Daddy

That's a funny message. Heaven forbid that our boy should be shown-up by girls!

The Cathedral of Learning postcards still sold in the gift shop there are only slightly newer than this one ;-)

It is a lovely building and they have Peregrine Falcon families living near the top in the spring. Always fun to watch via Kate St John's birdblog
