Vintage & Collectible Rhode Island Postcards

Birds-Eye View of Providence
From Prospect Terrace

Rhode Island

1916

This is an Americhrome birds'-eye view of the town of Providence, Rhode Island, published by the Providence News Company. 

Lena [illegible] mailed this postcard to Mrs. Dwight CASE of New Haven, Connecticut. Lena wrote, "Dear Leota,..." so Mrs. Dwight was actually Mrs. Leota CASE. The sender's last name looks like it could be Molix or Wolix, and they included a return address of 34 Benefit St. Click here to see a close-up of the sender's signature and make your own guess as to the proper spelling of her surname!

Lena reminded Leota to "be sure and come up next Sunday," and that if Leota would let them know what train to meet, they'd have a brass band out!

It was postmarked in Providence, RI on January 30, 1916, and bears a one cent stamp.
