Champion Bull Dog
When I first saw this postcard I thought the dog was rather ugly. But with time I’ve mellowed and I’ve become rather fond of this vintage card postmarked 1911, Binghamton New York.
A French woman – a seller of fish in Boulogne
But the postmark, stamp, and message are Swedish.
This card is rather puzzling. Written in June 1953 and posted from Ohio. The message seems totally unrelated to the card.
But I like the image on the card.
Phillips Brooks House, Class of 1881, Harvard College. Cambridge Mass.
This postcard was franked Sep 13 1910 Wilkinsburg Pa 1910 and addressed to a woman in Ohio
Oh if only this card could speak – instead I’ll have to think up the story it might tell.
Where is this postcard from?
Postcard image for a short story – any ideas?
