What in tarnation is going on here? Well, this postcard image is clearly a photo studio gag and not a snapshot of two handsome fellows in a hot air balloon over Duluth.
S. L. writes to Miss Clara Schlatzhamer of St. Peter that he and Pal (or Pat or Paul, or perhaps an unnamed “pal”) are “taking in the sight.” On the back he notes he will “leave for home today,” adding that the “concert was fine,” but the “singing not much good.” He also “visited Carl yesterday.”
The year the card was sent is easy enough to read. The specific date appears to be April 20, 1908. The credit on the left reveals the image is from the Penny Arcade at 10 W. Superior St.
