Wettengel House, Part 2

Continued from yesterday.

This postcard was not used, so no postmark, but since the photo is attributed to August Haase, we can guess it was taken sometime between 1902 and circa 1912, and the postcard produced after 1907.

Another Haase image, this particular one from an 8" x 10" reproduction of what was probably a postcard. Going by yesterday's pictures, this appears to be a south view of the house and garden.

That guess is supported by handwritten notes on the back of this unused postcard: "Wettengel house from south."

Unfortunately, the postmark is not clearly legible. To me it looks like 1911.

More to come.

This is so sweet...when Alvar grew up he moved back to Hobart and married Velma Hooseline; her mom, Emma, was the sister of my maternal grandfather...Alvar was a prosperous, but generous fellow...there is a large painting of him at Rees funeral home in Hobart. Thanks for posting's obvious his auntie was very fond of him.
