The postcard was addressed to Mrs Mable Ferry Naperville, Ill (Route 2)

408 E. Orange Street Gainesville Fla
Jan 26 1911  This was taken by H. E. Bartholomew Jan 21 at Hog Town Creek 2 1/2 miles north of Gainsville. We walked out there and ate our dinner on the banks of the creek under a magnolia tree.  We got pretty warm and tired coming home.  We have been down here a month.  We are having a fine time. Eddie and Elsie are here also I think to stay till cold storms are over al the north.  Gainsville is a city of 8,000 Fine town no saloons such friendly people.  We live together in  furnished room.  Take care of ourselves something doing every day.  Elsie and I invited to visit this afternoon all going out to large Stock Farm  miles from here a rig and driver tomorrow thru seated rig.  Mr and Mrs Grays are going too they are old new friends.
Your Friend Mrs H. E. Bartholomew

  2. I guess traveling south for the winter was popular then, too.

  3. I guess they would think it "pretty warm," walking all that way in those outfits!
