This Real Photo Postcard was found in-between pages 28 and 29.
Ok we have to break this postcard down into parts to understand it all.
I will assume that this was written by Mrs. Samuel Parks (Olive) and that it was sent to Nettie and Wesley Parks. With one of Nettie’s daughters writing in pen and and copying over part of the writing in pencil.
In Pencil: As I don’t know when we will get to see one another will send this to you. You probably have seen someone it looks like. August 18th 1910 From Elma + Howard To Their Little Cousins.
In Pen: Samuel T Parks ( Theodore I think) referring to Samuels Middle name. Then a clarification about the children : Uncle Sam’s 2 oldest at Carson..and then Parks. Samuel T. Parks and his wife Olive’s two oldest children were Elma born around 1906 and Howard born sometime in 1908-1909. That would make Elma about 4 and Howard about 2 when this photo was taken.
These two are just as cute as they can be, Elma with the big bows in her hair and Howard with his cap.
