Polk Street Depot

Chicago, Illinois

Cook County


This "white border" postcard features a view of the Polk Street Depot of Chicago, Illinois. This is part of a collection of photos and old postcards I purchased from a local antiques store.  

Edith, as she signed herself, mailed this from Waco, Texas to Mr.. & Mrs. Roy Farmer of Fort Worth, Texas. She informs them that she has arrived safe & sound but has been sick with fever every day since. Postmarked August 18, 1908, it bears a one-cent stamp. 

Further information about the FARMERS and  to see the other postcards & photos, including their wedding portrait, click here.
