Vintage Christmas Postcard

Rockport, Indiana

Spencer County

December 26, 1909

You can't really tell from the scan but this lovely postcard is embossed and has a gold moiré-type metallic or foil finish. It's quite a fancy one! Sadly, there's a tiny crease at the right top corner, which is the only thing that keeps this card from being absolutely perfect.

Signed simply, "Eva," this card was sent to Miss Grace REYNOLDS of Rockport, Indiana. It's also postmarked in Rockport: December 26, 1909, and it bears a one cent stamp. 

For the sake of saving web space and load time, I'll transcribe the message rather than adding a scanned image of the reverse of this card:

My dear Grace,

I have been wanting to come out to see you all week but have been almost down with a bad cold. Kate and I will be out some day next week as soon as the weather is suitable.

With love,


The rose garland on this card is quite pretty and the covered bridge on the lower right is such a nice touch to this snowy winter scene.
