I found one Irish postcard among my small collection of old postcards. This one is postmarked 1908. The people who touched this card have long since left this earthly plane. The back side shows an address that the card went to Miss Mabel Galloway, 261 Jay Street, Utica, NY and is simply signed Gerald….no message, just his name written in pencil. This card was illustrated by the noted artist, Ellen H. Clapsaddle.
I took the backroad to the post office today…here’s some of our local color. My mom grew up in this area. A few days ago, the two of us were on the same road and she was telling me about the people who lived along the road. She knew the couple who lived in the old log cabin. The Red Bud trees are popping out all over here in our little corner of the Ozarks.
