From the steamer trunk.

Has Herman Harms already decided that he wants to marry Minnie Rossow? This postcard was playful, of course; perhaps nothing more than playful.

Don't you wonder about the models in these postcards? — Who they were, how they found themselves sitting for such photos, where their lives led them afterwards? — no? I'm the only one? OK.

(And who, having jotted down that doggerel at the bottom, said to himself/herself: "Perfect!" or even "That'll do"?)

… Just look at this beautiful Ainsworth postmark. May 11, 1912.
