A postcard depicting Shedd Aquarium recently arrived at Scott McMurry’s Virginia home, more than five decades after his mom mailed it.
The 71-year-old says he immediately recognised his mother’s handwriting.
The postcard was addressed to Clairmont Lane in Decatur, Georgia, where McMurry grew up.
But it recently arrived in Elizabeth Fulcher’s mailbox on Clairmont Lane in South Daytona, Florida.
Fulcher posted a picture of the postcard on Facebook and her friends helped track down McMurry.
The half-century mail delay remains a mystery.
In the meantime, the aquarium has offered to give him a tour of the attraction that his late parents visited.
