Another beautiful Easter postcard!
This post card was purchased in an antique store in Hillsborough, North Carolina. It is addressed to:
Misses Ruth & Helen Nash
(Roseville) c/o Rev. Nash
It reads as follows:
We are hoping to see you this Sunday night. You aren’t going to let the snow frighten you are you? That was a fine little letter Ruth wrote to Grandma & Grandpa. Love to you both. Uncle John and auntie Lee.

This is postmarked Dec 31, 1-AM 1907 from St. Louis MO
Miss Verna Loonam (I think, post mark partially covers)
St. Charles, MO
c/o Bell Telephone Ofc.
A Happy New Year-
PS–I am excited to report that a family member (from Ireland!) has found my site and has given me some information about the card.
New Year’s Greetings – this card would have been addressed to Loverne Loonam. The other one As time Rolls By was addressed to her sisiter Mary R Loonam. The sisters died in the 1950s. They were spinsters.
I have included the backs of these two cards. (One is in post below.)
Written in pencil on the back, simply:
from grandma – grandpa
This picture was done by F. E. Beach of Lampasa, Texas. I have searched on line and find no information on the studio. This appears to be a little boy, finely dressed.
I really like this picture:
My husband noted the sloping roof. I noted the hat that the lady is wearing. Looks like a ranger hat. We decided it must be cold territory.
I felt like a true archeologist with this one. Someone had glued it into a photo book at one time, as evidence by a thick black paper covering part of the back. There was a bit of writing visible underneath the edges of the paper. I took a barely damp paper towel and blotted the black paper until it peeled. I cannot make out all of this, but part of it says:
“this is the little boy who lives in our camp”
I cannot make out the rest.
This little paper had the words “Good Morning” printed underneath the picture. On the back was handwritten: “a happy birthday Sept. 20, ’07″
