“The wish of thy friend is
Happy be thy Birthday”
Per musings from the prior post, here’s another card with the often seen stone bridge. A simple design in a fancy frame: a winter scene with red bridge over a stream and a red house that’s supposed to be further in the background. One of the Lena Davis collection, and the sender wrote:
“Oct. 4, 1912. Dear Cousin. Many happy birthday greetings from Mr. and Mrs. C. Haney[?]”
Addressed to: “Miss Lena Davis. Almena, Kans. R. F. D. #3”
And what almost went unnoticed was the publisher info which barely appears from under the postage stamp, indicating Copyright E. Nash.
Last but not least, this same design with a different message shows up on another card in the same collection.
Divided back, embossed, used postcard. Postmarked October 5, 1912 from Elwood, Nebraska. Publisher: E. Nash. Landscape Series, No. 16B.
