Not sure who wrote on the back of this photo.  The handwritting is a bit different from Violas.
This could be Harry B Van Sickel …who was born in 1858…or it could be someone else??   The postcard is most likely from the early 1900’s.  It is hard to tell with so little of the original postcard visible.
Thanks for stopping by.

This photo went Full Circle 177 on Jan 4 2019

  3. Well...whenever it was, it was before the postage rate jumped to two cents!

    He looks rather resigned in his photograph. Wonder what was on his mind...
