Vintage & Collectible Texas Postcards:

Birds-Eye View of 
Mineral Wells, Texas


"Dot" sent this postcard from Mineral Wells, Texas to Roy R. FARMER of Fort Worth.  Postmarked August 29, 1909, it bears a one-cent stamp. Dot wrote that she had sent letter after letter to him but didn't know why he had not received them, and that she was sending this one to the house.

Presumably, Roy FARMER received the postcard, as I purchased it with a number of FARMER photographs  from the same estate at an antique store in Fort Worth!

"Dot" was probably the nickname of his wife, Jodot ROWLAND.
