This Real Photo postcard looks as new as if it had just been printed! It features a photo of the Winfield High School,, Cowley Co., Kansas. I bought it with a lot of Kansas postcards on
eBay, but at first I wasn't sure this would be Winfield, Kansas, or Winfield, Missouri, as both the sender and the recipient were from Missouri.
The postmark gives away its age: February 3, 1913. it was sent by Ed WASSON from Browning, Linn County, Missouri, to Sada MOODY of Madison, Monroe County, (Missouri?). Ed reports that he has found all the folks doing well.
