Vintage & Collectible Maine Postcards:

Congress Square

Portland, Maine

1924

Cumberland County

Ben CONARD of Philadelphia received this postcard from  L. FRAIM, who wrote that he (or she) wished that Ben was there "to eat and sleep and walk as much as I am doing."

The writer added that it wasn't especially exciting there, but he/she was staying at a lovely location right on Casco Bay, would be going to a "500" that evening, and had received Ben's mother's letter.

The card was postmarked July 24, 1924 at Yarmouth, Maine, and bears a 1 cent stamp.

You'll have to be the judge as to whether the name is actually spelled CONARD or COUARD, by inspecting the reverse side of this card and also the postcard from The Old Fort Inn at Kennebunkport, Maine. And while the handwriting appears to be similar, the signatures don't seem to be the same.
