Abstract

After my grandmother passed away, I decided to undertake a large task of cataloguing the large (over 600) postcard collection that we had enjoyed viewing while she was alive. Within the collection included a postcard album dated with postmark dates ranging from 1908-1909.

This picture postcard was printed in 1908, and features Gertrude Kinnear sitting on the arm of an ornate chair in early twentieth century attire that many affluent women wore including a large hat with flowers.

Inscription on verso:

1908
Gertrude Kinnear
Gran's sister (notated at an unknown time by Elizabeth Mealy)
