A hand-colored French postcard, postmarked 1906. A (rather poor) translation of the cupid’s French caption is:
“I know that your faithful soul
Dreams of one day getting married
For him alone you will make yourself beautiful
I know all I am love”
Fun British postcard, postmarked October 30th 1907. The message written on the side appears to be in German?
Another German postcard of another unidentified, stylish woman- this time in winter clothes! It is dated 1907. The dress, buttons, and feathers on the hat are hand colored.
A picture apparently cut out of a postcard- a group of people standing around a beer barrel. The back reads: “mistake it beer barrel is the famous”
I have no idea what that means.
Postcard of girls having fun! :) Postmarked October 14th 1909.
The reverse reads:
“Dear Ralph- The first lady sitting on this log is a merry widow. The other two are old married ladies.
Ray wrote me that Geo. Greenwood was recently married to a Miss Anderson. When you come to California, you must stop at Redlands and see the Archers. Love to all the Ladds. May.”
It is addressed to Mr. Ralph Ladd,
Postcard of an unidentified woman and man with a trombone, featuring some sort of pretty pattern! I have no idea what that could be from.
Postcard of soldiers, presumably from WWI. Not sure of the nationality of the soldiers- possibly German.
Civil War era sampler probably stitched by my great-great-great grandmother Mary Gary Mosby (nee Hughes).
I don’t know what’s up with my lady ancestors having guy middle names, by the way…
