This is a postcard from the antique shop in Solway Minnesota.
It was written 100 years ago. She wears an ankle length gown of a dotted fabric, the blouse has a sailor inspired collar and is slightly pigeon breasted with a bow at the waist. Possibly that is a watch chain that she is wearing around her neck that falls to her waist.

Dear Cousins I am going to send you one of my cards I had taken last summer. The4y aren’t very good but it will show I haven’t forgotten you. How are you? I am fine and dandy hope you are the same. The rest of the folks aren’t so well at the present. We have had a fine fall of snow the last day or so. I tell you it looks some what like winter it was so pretty it did look like spring had come. But it is some what changed, have you had much snow your way. Have you heard from Johnnies folks. Lately we haven’t, how are the children come and see us when you come back in the country. tell Johnnie hello from me. Write again we always like to hear from you. With love from (Nora Russell)
