Vintage  Postcard

Evansville Cotton Mills

Vanderburgh County, Indiana

January 23, 1908


Here's an oldie: this is a view of the Evansville Cotton Mills in Indiana. It's by the waterside and is fenced - to keep those cattle out, perhaps?

The reverse side is not divided, and is marked, "This Side for Address Only." It was mailed to Grace  K-[illegible] REYNOLDS of Rockport, Indiana. No street address is given but presumably the postman knew where Grace lived.

 Signed simply, "Eva," this card was sent to Miss Grace Reynolds of Rockport, Indiana. It's also postmarked in Rockport: January 23, 1908. The stamp was removed. 

The message is written in the tiny space at the bottom of the card's front, and I'll have to dig out my magnifying glass to read it all. What I see now is:

Grace

[Illegible] ... what you missed by not going to Evansville with the bride & groom!  ...[illegible] ..tell you about it and have you written Mary W.

Lovingly,

Margie & [?]
