WOW!!!!! What a find! I envy whoever gets ahold of this.

I'm amazed at the attention to detail; that Lucy actually wrote a note to the character. I'm wondering if Lillian came about because she misremembered the name and it's simply what she wrote down. Also, how neat to finally know the character's address after all these years.

 

Definitely an amazing find.  (Bravo, Jimmy!))  But do we really know Lillian's address?  It's clear that she lives on E. 67th St., but what is that street number to the left of the "E"?  Is that 1413?  If so, that would put her way over on the other side of the East River, (outside of Manhattan), somewhere in Queens on a street that isn't even called 67th St.

It's either 1413 or 1423. The eBay listing put it as 1423.

423 was certainly on Lucy's mind when they filmed the episode.

I'd love to know the provenance of this!


Me too!

Well as the addresses in that part of Manhattan only go up to about the 400 block, a 1423 address is pretty incredible.  I think this postcard ultimately got stamped "return to sender, address unknown."

Well, fictional addresses were hardly revolutionary on that show, if Fred and Ethel owning a building in the middle of the East River was any indication :)
