Mailed in July of 1908, this humorous scene appears to have been mailed from Rosenberg, Illinois to Fort Worth, Texas in July of 1908. The recipient was an Essie Easterwood who lived at 2423 Bryan (or Bryant) Ave., and a quick bit of searching suggests that Essie (full name Mattie Essie Easterwood) may have lived from 1892 to 1976 and had a daughter who passed in 2013. The photo at right shows Essie, year unknown. Written on the back of the card:
“Hello Bill -
Well walk up and write to your old friend. What is the matter with the girl. I have not received a letter from any one in two or three weeks.”
