This postcard was sent to Miss Fannie Martin (my Grandma Longenecker) from Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. The postmark, dated October 15, 1909, is intact but the stamp has been cut out, deleting some of the text that would illuminate the meaning of the scene.
Your mission, should you choose to accept: Write a caption for the scene. If you feel bold, create a story!
Here it is in magnified view, some of the script made visible:
An invitation: Write a caption for the scene. If you feel bold, create a story!
- What is the woman actually sewing?
- What relationship do you think the boy has with the woman?
- What do you see in the scene that you think others may miss?
