friend,barb. she was out & about antiquing
with her husband,denny,when she spotted this
and thought of me....thanks,barb! i love it!
it was sent to miss lizzy walker in liberty,illinois
in 1907 from her friend nina...the note enclosed
in the teeny envelope reads...
"dear lizzie,

Oh. That card is so sweet. I love stuff like that! Half the coolness of old postcards are the messages on the back. Don't you wonder what those people were like? What a ncie gift!! Danielle
