This is an Azo postcard from 1904 to 1918.  I would say closer to the 1918 date because of the length of the ladies skirts.

That is a good sized house.  It looks like it has a summer kitchen and screened in porch off to the left.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  1. Doors on the corner of houses like this were called casket doors but I don't think this one seems to be any wider than a normal door. It is a large house with many rooms.

    I wonder if the house is still there?

  3. If Grandma is right, Milo's family scattered into the winds.

    Rachel Cross' obituary states she died in 1960 and was survived by the following children:

    Stanley, Walter, and Maurice of Anaheim, California;
    Warren of Winnebago, MN;
    Mrs. Leonard Caudle of Jewell, Iowa;
    Mrs. Clarence Jones of Minneapolis

    and by 24 grandchildren, and 20 great grandchildren (as of 1960!)
