This is a beautifully designed “Birthday Greetings” postcard of an Ireland-looking scene of boats in the bay, green hills, a castle in the distance, bordered by four-leaf clover with flowers and three cheerful birdies. The embossing is wonderful, the detail of the clover…it’s kind of too bad this got so soiled over the years, but then again, what’s a few coffee stains, etc? It’s another from The Alice Ellison Collection, and the sender, Lizzie, writes:
“Dear little sister, I hope you passed to the third grade. How is Mamma? We are all well. Dos. & Geo. was out last sunday. love from your sister Lizzie.”
Addressed to: “Miss Henrietta Ellison, 26 st. & Cheyenne Ave., Pueblo, Colo.”
This postcard is unusual in that when you flip it over, it’s upside down. Wonder how many others turned out that way.
Divided back, embossed, used postcard, postage stamp removed. Postmarked from Sacramento, California, 1912. Publisher: Pacific Novelty Company, San Francisco, California. Made in Germany.
