Photo of the White Clay, NE. post office.  Brian Garner's grandmother had this postcard photo of White Clay, NE post office in a box which was passed on to his mother, who sent it to Brian.  The post office established 1904 and thought there is no postmark or date on the card, it dates in the 1910s.  The photographer's name in the lower right-hand corner is Whipman.  Mr. & Mrs Ten Fingers and a group of citizens, including the post master and a nice team of horses.   submitted by Brian Garner
