Architect Walter Boschen’s building has stood the test of time for more than 100 years as the home of the St. Joseph Young Woman’s Christian Association. This 1915 postcard from the St. Joseph Callendar and Novelty Co. features the new YWCA building. Mailed for a penny on May 9, 1915, to a Miss Pauluce by the YWCA’s Pioneer Club secretary. The message tells the recipient about the club’s next meeting.
