Divided back, embossed, used postcard. Postmarked August 7, 1915 from Alta Loma, California. Printed in Germany. Series 444/10.
From the Alice Ellison Collection, this appears to be husband writing to wife; he writes:
“Aug 7, 1915. Dear Ma, wee got to Lena’s at nine oclock this morning and found them all well. But Lena she has Poisen yet. Wee dident have any troble. Wee only changed cars at Stockton. With Love from Dad.”
Addressed to: ” “Mrs. J. M. Ellison, Tutten[?] av. Box 382, East Sacramento, Calif.”
A few comments:
Yikes (!) on the “poison” if that’s what the sender meant, but maybe it was just that Lena was still sick.
The publisher logo on the back (the W inside the diamond) appears to belong to the F. W. Woolworth Co., New York, NY, the “Five & Dime” store or by my own era, just “dime store” (funny how these old terms creep up sometimes still, dime store, ice box…..) See Metropostcard’s website under W for more on Woolworth.
And lastly, the name of the avenue for the address is not showing up online, maybe Fifteenth? even though that’s quite a stretch when looking at the writing.
