Another View of the Pennsy Bridge

I hadn't seen this photo before I came across this postcard that had strayed from the steamer trunk and got itself into a little random collection hidden away in a closet. You never know!

I believe the photographer is standing on the northerly-westerly bank of the Deep River (everything runs at angles in this section of Hobart), pointing his camera northerly-easterly toward the bridge. And there those people are standing on the railroad tracks waiting to be run down.

The postmark is November 17, 1914.

I have no clue about that cryptic message.

Minnie and Herman's relationship must have reached a new level...the stamp is upside down! This supposedly expresses love, longing, miss you, etc. in the "language of stamps"...very sweet!
